My daughters (9yrs) room is such a mess. It's so bad that she couldn't even find a pair of shoes to wear to school, so she missed the bus this morning.
So here is my question??
Do you clean your kids rooms?
I've gone in there and spent an entire Sunday cleaning and organizing it more than once, then implimedted "rules" that she has to have a clean room in order to do basically anything. Well.. it doesn't work, it gets messy and then I'm not going to have her miss an activity that I have already PAID for, and when her dad gets involved and tells her to clean she just sits there and cries and cries and says, "I am cleaning it" while she lays on top of a pile of clothes.
I admit that my side of the room is not the cleanest in the world, but I am trying hard to keep the house in order and myself sane. A woman I know has three kids, 15, 11 and 8 she still cleans there rooms for them!?! I thought, wow either they are really lucky or I am evil, because my kids have chores as well as the suposed responsibility to keep there rooms clean... So I don't know what to do anymore. Any advice?
Should I just take everything out of her room except the bed or should I just cave in and clean it all the time? Should I just make her stay in there until it's clean which would seriously be forever.....
