Need To Remodel! What About My Children?

Aug 17, 2007
Let your children help carry the hammer or nails.

Maybe dad needs help while he is sawing a board. Let one of the children hold the furthest end of the board for his dad.

Don't be afraid to involve your children. Children learn from their parents .

Letting your children see how a remodeling job is done will help them acknowledge what working is about.

Show your children the safe and proper way to carry out a job. This will prevent unnecessary injuries to them.

If there is any sanding to be done , involve your children.

Don't expect them perform perfect work for you.

Give them praise for their efforts.

Remodeling can become a family plan. The more time you let your children help you the less likely they are to get into unwanted trouble. When you involve your children , they will become more eager to help out the next time. You will have developed a connection with them.

Many remodeling jobs at home can be hazardous. Children need guidance in helping out with the lower key jobs. If your remodeling involves moving furniture and small objects such as pictures or chairs , involve your children. They can help clear the way for you to begin.

Who don't drop a nail when hammering ? Let your children pick up off the floor for you. They can do this for you to prevent having to come off the ladder several times .

When painting ,use drop clothes on the floor. Children can spread this out for you. Let them carry the paint brush to the cleaning area for you when finished.

There are so many ways children can help out in remodeling. A family that can work together is sure to stay together. No Child should ever be turned down when they are making an effort to help out. Bring your children up to help you. When you (the parents) get older and can't do the remodeling , you can always call on your children.

Be proud of the little jobs your children do. The next generation may be the ones remodeling your house for you. No job is never to small that you couldn't use a little helping hand. Those little hands could be your children or grand children. Show them how to carry on your remodeling jobs for the future. Those little hands can make remodeling more enjoyable when you stop and think of all the love they put into helping you.
