Have You Seen This? How to get your toddler to clean house
You just...ask them to clean the house, according to the Australian dad in this gut-busting video. - photo by Martha Ostergar
YOUR HOUSE It seems to me that at least three-quarters of the time spent raising infants and toddlers is pure cleanup.

Messy diapers, food spillage, toy carnage and snot-nosed faces come at you in a never ending stream. So much so that Id wager parents also spend that same amount of time daydreaming about when their children can clean up after themselves already.

As this video shows, that time may arrive much earlier than you think. All you have to do is ask, according to Australian YouTube user, Jordan Watson.

Basically, babies will do anything if you ask them to do it, Watson says in the video introduction.

He then demonstrates the technique using his own sweet little girl. She (sort of) vacuums, rakes the leaves, takes out the trash and more! Easy peasy. But there is a catch. Babies are not indefatigable, and there is a breaking point an adorable, passive-resistance breaking point.
