Say #YesToTheMess @Swiffer #PGMomGiveaway CAN 15/05


With the help of Swiffer, parents can say “Yes to the Mess!” and embrace life’s little messes because they’re able to get a really thorough clean in minutes. The easy clean-up process allows children the opportunity to make a mess and explore a life rich in creativity.

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

It’s an incredible experience to see your child create something without any reservations; unfortunately, this is a rare sight for most. According to the second annual Swiffer Cleaning Index, the majority (70 per cent) of parents feel that letting kids make a mess helps encourage their creativity, however many (65 per cent) have said “no” to their kids’ request because of the mess it will make.

The belief that messes are a part of a child’s development is increasing with the generations. Seventy-five per cent of millennials think that letting kids make messes encourages their creativity- this is in comparison to the 62 per cent of Boomer parents.

A mess can be a great learning opportunity, in so many ways. Nearly all parents (97 per cent) agree that young children learn a lot from cleaning up a mess.SMG

There are several celebrities who vouch for the creative process. Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar recently hosted a Swiffer event in New York City where she encouraged parents to say “Yes to the Mess” in an effort to foster children’s creativity and independence.

As your child grows up you’ll never wonder “what could have been” when it comes to the creativity they express, as long as you’re providing a warm and welcoming environment. We’d love for you to share your child’s most brilliant mess to date as a part of our #YesToTheMess movement.

Aside from all of the messes my daughter made as an infant and as a toddler, my daughter routinely made messes as a child.  I’m not sure that I can pick only one example of her biggest mess! Having said this, I can certainly pick any of the many messes and talk about them.  One mess that comes to mind is when she was 7 years old.  I had given her a mug-full of Goldfish crackers to eat; she took them to eat at the window in the dining room and was quiet for the longest time.  Moms/Dads everywhere know that quiet means trouble! When I poked my head in to check on her, I found her crushing the crackers on the window!  Crumbs everywhere!  UGH!  What a mess!  Of course, I quickly explained that messes need to be cleaned up and so we promptly cleaned up the mess together.
