Keep It Tidy


Get the whole fam involved in the upkeep, as Saleem does: “We assign age-appropriat­e duties using two chore wheels.” Younger children spin the one with tasks such as sweeping the deck, refilling the bird feeder, and brushing leaves off pillows and chairs. The older kids’ wheel features jobs like mowing or watering the lawn, light pruning, and cleaning the grill. “This way, everyone takes ownership in making sure our space stays in order.”
