A reader said a friend of hers had been trying to implement the habit of cleaning up as she goes, but a 1 year old and a husband were making the work go backwards. When your kids are between 1 and 3 especially it’s really hard to keep things clean. Let your standards go a bit or you will drive yourself mad. You can also start teaching them at that age to put things away. As for the husband, I thought I would bring out my How to Live with a Messy Spouse post to help them out.
Do you have any tips?
