Pesach – Kids During Cleaning [#430]

Question:

Many parents are unable to cope with the tasks of Erev Pesach, when  cleaning for  Pesach is in full swing. Little children run around “between their parents’ feet” and don’t pay attention to what is going on. How can we deal with this?

Answer:

During all these days, a special day must be allocated for proper activity with one's children. In addition, each day should have a certain amount of time, in the midst of cleaning, allocated solely to the children. This "rest period" is not only for the children but also for the parents themselves.
