I read about development stage of the children. It said that children at the age of 5 to 8 can pick up their toys, make their beds, and clean their rooms. They can also lend a hand with tasks in the kitchen and garden.
I already see this milestone from Raine. I always spend time with my plants on my leisure time. Raine is with me. When I water the plants, I give her own little bucket. At first, she plays with the water but as she sees that her big brother Railey is doing the same way as I do, she imitates.
Children are great imitators and explorers. When they discover a new skill and try it, all we can do is encourage them and appreciate the effort they made regardless of what they can come up. The more they do the skill, the better they’ll get it well. And we have to watch them while they’re learning.
Raine is becoming my another little helper. She can make those cleaning, little by little. It is important that not only your physical appearance is clean, but also the things around you. It reflects for what and who you are.
And girl, clean is beautiful!
