Your mother does a lot of work to keep your home running well, so try to help her out. Here’s how you can make things easier for your busy mom. First of all, if you want to help your mom, you should keep your own room clean. Strive not to make a mess. If you do, clean it up. Keep track of your things and put them away when you’re done with them. Your living environment will be clean and you will have a better chance of doing some of the things you want to do!
Your mother is probably working hard, so she would be glad if you could help her. Figure out what tasks you could do that your mother usually takes care of or ask your mother what you could do for her. Don’t try to “surprise” your mom by taking on a job you’ve never done before by yourself. If you do it incorrectly, you could even make more work for your mom.
If your mom asks for your help, help her out! She wouldn’t be asking if she didn’t really need your help! Clean up around the house, do everything with a good attitude. Your mother will see then that you’re really willing to help. You can gather your family and organize a “Mom’s Day Off”. Divide up the tasks and make a present for your mom. Your mother will have the day to herself. Make sure that every day is, at least a little, Mother’s Day.
Make cleaning a habit and it will make a big difference in the clutter level in your home. Apply the “picking up as you go” concept. Create a checklist and make sure to complete all the small tasks listed there. For example: make your bed when you get out of it in the morning; after having breakfast/dinner, rinse all dishes and load the dishwasher; put things away when you are done with them, etc.
