    Cleaning a Messy House (In a Hurry!)

    Oops! Sorry, HowardP8... I thought you were serious. Lol. I hope you have a great day too! :)

    Lol! Me too Laral... and we mustn't forget to thank our cushions and roll-up bamboo mats for the work they do for us! I was very drawn in by the title of that book, but I didn't get too far into it without realizing that the author was waaayyyyy out there in her beliefs, ideology, religion, whatever "code" that is that she lives by. God bless her, but God help me if I had to live that way, lol. I agree with her about gratefulness, and I am a very grateful person, but I must admit that I do NOT thank my socks or any of my clothing, as she does. Lol. :D

    Child labor? Lol, the children are probably the ones who made the biggest mess, shouldn't they help clean it up? This teaches them accountability and helps them make the connection that THEY are responsible for their actions. If you take it out, put it away. If you spill it, wipe it up, etc... It also helps them realize that "MOM" isn't their maid. It teaches them teamwork, showing them by example how to work together to accomplish a goal. It teaches them how to be responsible and know how to maintain a neat and clean home. Isn't a parent's job to teach and train a child how to become an independent adult? Of course you wouldn't have them do dangerous things or handle dangerous chemicals, etc... but teaching them to work is a necessary skill for life, one that is sadly forgott...see more »Child labor?

    Thanks for reminding me ... It's easy for me to get so busy and bogged down that I forget how to get started on cleaning. I enjoyed your article.
