Summary: Cooperate clean-up works especially well if you have more than one child.


Activity: Think of a clean-up project around your home or yard and make it a family project. Let your children make decisions about what they would like to contribute to the effort and their plans for the area. Encourage cooperative activity. For example, let two people use a broom and a dust pan or ask one person to dig with a shovel while another plants seeds or flowers. Be sure to emphasize the satisfaction of accomplishing something together.
