Tipping Point – nounTipping Point and Home Cleaning

The tipping point is that critical point in a situation, process, or system beyond which a significant and often unstoppable effect or change takes place.
In Sociology, a tipping point is a point in time when a group—or a large number of group members—rapidly and dramatically changes its behavior by widely adopting a previously rare practice.
Malcolm Gladwell wrote a bestselling book called “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference” in 2000. With this book, the concept of a “Tipping Point” entered popular culture. The concept can be applied to many things and situations and this includes home cleaning.

(for the Kids – but it works for adults too!)

Sometimes you can get quite a bit done and have it done properly if you work from a list. The list idea can be presented to your children whether boys or girls (it does actually work for boys). The list can help you to get more done as you bring in the support of others. It also helps you to have it done properly as the checklist is a step-by-step approach that ensures things are done in the proper way.

What am I referring to? What is the magical list that helps you to get more done and done properly? Why of course it is the bathroom cleaning checklist.

This is a printable (see below), focused list that is a detailed “how to” clean the bathroom – the bathrooms of your house. It is wonderful for children as it can teach them about a process and how getting things done sometimes means doing things in order. It helps them to learn how to follow instructions.

You will not forget something if it is on the cleaning list.

When children are ready to help cleaning the bathrooms they have already encountered some level of school and they have been in settings where they have had to listen and then follow instructions. This ability to pay attention, focus and then follow instructions is an important lesson to learn.

To get help from your young humans with tasks which contribute to a cleaner more organized home is valuable. Show them how to learn and follow a process and help them to develop into fine adults and get a clean bathroom too!

When you really get down to it there are multiple layers to a clean and organized house. I typically think of 3 distinct layers.

There is the base layer, then the organization layer and then the sparkling clean layer – this layer is the ultimate – the pinnacle – it is what we all strive for if a clean and organized home is our goal.

In my opinion, a clean and organized house is the most comfortable. Things are in their place. You don’t spend time looking for things that have been misplaced. You don’t care when people just drop by for a chat or a cup of coffee and it is still a home you can relax in and enjoy.

Let’s break down the individual layers.
