Helping Hands at Home

 

Helping Hands at Home is an ebook by Mrs. Lorrie Flem of Eternal Encouragement.  In it she teaches moms how to teach their children how to be little helpers at home.  What mama doesn't need that?  The first section gives instruction on how to teach your children how to clean the bathroom.  The second portion is all about how to teach them to clean the kitchen.  In the ebook Lorrie includes a section to help you motivate your children to clean these rooms (that is helpful!)  If you thought it was impossible to make your children want to clean, well Lorrie shows you how.  I found her tips on this extremely helpful to motivate my children to want to clean.

Lorrie shows you how to teach your children step-by-step how to clean the bathroom and kitchen.  I love that because it makes it much easier to know exactly what to do.  This is especially helpful to mommies whose own mothers did not teach them how to clean.  Lorrie walks you right through cleaning an entire bathroom and cleaning an entire kitchen.  Each step is explained in great detail.  Also included are several additional tips and ideas for teaching your children these important life skills.

My only complaint is that Lorrie's bathroom instructions include using a bucket of water and cleaner with a  rag.  I am just a spray bottle of cleaner and paper towel kind of gal.  Then I can just throw away the ick in the trash.  But I know everyone isn't like that, and it really doesn't affect the usefulness of the book at all--no matter what you like to clean with, you can use Lorrie's step-by-step instructions and learn how to get your children to help you out in this area!  Thank you, Lorrie for another great product!  Helping Hands at Home is available for Kindle for only $0.99.

I received this product for free to review for The Gabby Moms program, but the opinions expressed here are completely my own, honest opinions.

  1. I am going to check this out right now. I have been thinking lately of how to help A learn to help me out more around the house. She will be turning 6 in just a few months. Thank you for the recommendation.

  2. What you teach you children when they are small will be used when they leave home. My sons can both keep a home and cook, very important now they have their own homes. For my son who is married, he is a great help to his wife. Being part of family means working as a team, everyone helping, it's not all for mum to do .

  3. I think the kids would like the spray and wipe method better too!
