Here are some simple steps to assist in a cleaner more manageable home for the modern family.

De clutter

All of those items, trinkets and decor that doesn't serve a purpose of practicality should either be stored away where you can't see it or potentially de cluttered for your local op shop - thrift shop or given away. This means less to clean and wipe, led to look at and an easy less detailed life surrounding.

Don't double up the items

Less is more; if you have more than one item that is no longer serving you any good of practicality, value or sentiment such as magazines, books, vases, or any other items that can also be de cluttered.

Have lots of storage

If you feel you just can't get rid of certain objects it's very handy to have additional storage to de clutter and keep your sentimental items. Whether it be clothes, decor, furniture or anything else; working with storage cabinets, boxes, ottomans and chests are very useful.

Designate places for every child's item

Assigning set places for yours and your child's items is very effective for long term tidiness, removes the bad habit of laziness and gives them responsibility.

Delegate cleaning chores

Giving every person in the household cleaning duties means cooperation, family bonding, synchronicity and creates balance in the household. You could potentially keep a chart on the fridge or in a "notepad drawer" with a set schedule of each persons daily task.

Whether you change around decor, pillows, art pieces, frames or bigger items. Maintaining the knowingness of where everything is has great effective importance to ones inner clarity.
This is also very therapeutic.
