Teaching about cleanliness to your sons and daughters is just as important as teaching them about etiquette. Hygiene needs to be taught early because cleanliness has a big effect on their behavior in the future.
Teaching cleanliness to young children can be a bother, before teaching them to start with us first, show your example in front of them let them see you.
I agree with the common expression in Indonesian society that cleanliness is part of faith, but not by practice in everyday life. In fact, there are many people who litter either in the river, on the highway or in other public places, especially plastic waste because the plastic waste is very difficult to decompose and it takes tens or even hundreds of years to make it destroyed.
People who throw away garbage, seem to have absolutely no concern for the surrounding environment, even those around him who know his actions have absolutely no desire to admonish him as if he is indifferent and impressed.
These habits are very bad and dirty, these habits can harm you and others, making the environment around us live to be seedy and unsightly, this kind of behavior should be stopped immediately. No one can change a person if it does not come from the person’s personal desire, so let us start from within each of us individually and in our family to get used to always clean life by not littering, especially to Our children. It would be easier to teach cleanliness to our children as they were little because the lessons would stick strongly in their minds rather than be taught as they got older. For that, start teaching them cleanliness in the following ways:
Giving an example
Nothing is impossible to achieve, by example and patience You can teach cleanliness to your children, gradually but constantly your children will get used to doing it themselves without you need any more command.
Make cleanliness a habit
Start from yourself, routinely besides taking bath 2 times a day clean your house, your bedroom, kitchen after cooking, involve your children to help.
Give a special place for your children’s toys
Invite your children to always return their toys back to the space provided after they finish playing.
When children without your command and with self-consciousness cleansing or tidying up the things that he has done do not hesitate to promptly give praise, that way the children will feel greatly appreciated.
Throw garbage in its place
Not only at home, cleanliness can start from a waste bin, when you are in a public place always throw garbage in the space provided, if you find there is no available waste bin to keep it temporarily until you find the trash. Teach children to do the same thing they educate to be responsible, explain that cleanliness is good and fun.
Surely there are many methods or ways that you can use to teach cleanliness to your children. Start from yourself, ask yourself if you have been keeping clean, not only at home but also in public places. If everybody in this world really did his part to keep clean, then the neighborhood where we live would be the most fun place in the world. Let’s start now keeping our place clean and healthy.…
