So, here I am with a significant post about Various House Activities for kids. As parents, we believe or understand, that we should not let our kids work or participate in daily house activities. But trust me, by doing this, you are only deteriorating your kid. Involving kids in some of the house activities is not only good for them, but also, makes you more comfortable around your kid. You as parents / guardians get more time to spend with your kids. In return, your kids start respecting every household chore and understand the value of co-working in family.
These activities are your basic daily house chores, but, as a mother I believe, if you engage your child (girl / boy), it enables them to be:
- Confident about themselves
- Future ready for life struggles
- Empathetic towards others
Organizing room and house
When we wake up, Kreesha and her dad take the responsibility of organizing bed back to perfection. They fold up the blankets, straighten the sheets and put those unorganized pillows back to their places. Involving Kreesha in this basic activity, is all to teach her basic etiquettes of cleaning and organizing. This daily routine of hers has helped me a lot. She puts back her toys in the closet on her own, once she is done playing. She never leaves her toys scattered around the house. This habit has also ensured that she understands the value of co-working in a family.
Yes, the second daily activity we involve our child in feeding our pet. We have a pug at our place, and whenever we its his food time, we ensure Kreesha feeds him or sits with us while feeding him. Initially, I wasn’t sure of this but I have witnessed a good and gradual change in her behavior. Kreesha now asks everyone for food in the family. If we have a guest at home, she makes sure they are fed properly. She would try to serve them with her small hands, in every possible way, just to ensure they are eating. She never leaves her food wasted. Now, infact, she has started feeding to birds, water plants as she is slowly understanding they are living beings.
