Some part of the articles:
Laundry day with the children
MOST parents do the laundry on weekends. Hafiza Abdul Rahman and her husband Azhar Zahir supervise their four kids, aged 2 to 7, when they do their own laundry.
“All of them have helped with laundry without complaining. In fact, they love doing little chores in the laundry room and are always eager to help,” says Hafiza, who lives in Bandar Baru Bangi.
“They even argue about who gets to do it, even though it has been scheduled earlier,” she adds, laughing.
For the last two years or so, Hafiza only looks in on them and the kids have been doing the laundry. For now, the web designer who works from home has introduced washing, drying and ironing to her children. Hafiza has her own blog www.littlekittle.com in which she’s known as MamaFiza.
She believes that educating children about laundry at a young age teaches them responsibility and builds self-esteem. At that age, kids are usually eager to complete tasks. “There is no need to be perfect. Self-reliance and pride in the completed task is more important. In fact, my husband and I believe that children can handle various responsibilities based on their age and abilities,” says Hafiza.
“I create a chore chart (household tasks) and each child gets a chart. There is a section for combined chores with parents and children involved,”, says the author of Hidangan Si Cilik.
Here, Hafiza shares tips on how to get children to do their laundry. She advises giving the children time to adjust to it.
• Get your child to place worn or soiled garments in a box or basket. Provide each child with his or her own container. Through this, they learn organisational skills and to leave things in designated places.
• Teach them to sort laundry: One basket for light colours, another for jeans. Socks are right side out. Wrong side out for dark colours and, if there are stains, to hand the item to mama or papa so they can be treated first.
• Toddlers can help hand over clothes pegs, match socks and roll them. Pre-schoolers can bring their own clothes to the laundry area when it’s time to wash.
• Get them to sort clothes by colours. After sorting, clothes are washed and dried, then folded and put away in drawers or hung. They can also help by using a damp cloth to wipe the washing machine.
• Show them how the load size works: Small, medium or large. When clothes are dry and ready to be folded, use terms like rectangles, squares (e.g. for washcloths and towels). If you have different ways of folding socks, wash cloths and towels, show them how it’s done. As repetition is a great teacher, children need very detailed, step-by-step instructions. Be sure to walk through the procedures with your child for several loads.
• Make laundry time a fun time for your child. You may also set aside a day for “laundry day”. Use praise, hugs, kisses and say thanks (with lots of love). Thank them for their help even if it is not perfect.
• Safety comes first. Always remind them to be careful with lids of washing machines. Write basic steps on A4 cards, laminate them and hang them on the wall over the washer.
• Parents need to be in charge of laundry chemicals (close the lids tightly) and it is important to read the labels so that they are aware of the chemicals, hazards and caution signs.
• Supervise 4-6-year-olds where detergent is concerned. Teach them when and where to add the detergent. Use a permanent marker to draw a line on the scoop to show how full it should be.
• Use a clothes line to dry laundry. It’s simple and fun even to teach children how to hang clothing on the line and how to use a hanger.
May Allah swt blessed your kindred heart *triple hugs*
No doubt, children are a gift from God! They deserve every opportunity to learn about everything.
Do guide your little angle on this amazing journey, they deserve the experience
