The One-Liner That Will Get Your Kids To Clean The House During The Holidays

Posted in Parenting on December 23, 2016 - by

Is your house a mess? Especially during the holidays?

I tell my kids that Santa doesn't come to a cluttered house so they will frantically clean the week before Christmas.

Alternative strategies from other savvy moms:

  • Santa doesn't leave things for kids with messy rooms.
  • I may have threatened to send Santa pics of their bedrooms...
  • Tell the kids that if we do not clean up the old toys, the new ones can't come in!
  • I told my daughter that she better keep her toys put away so that if Santa checks in on her it doesn't seem like she has very much.
  • My husband tells the kids that if Santa trips and falls, then no one gets presents.
