Now, on to my big question of the day:
What do you do to make sure your children keep there rooms clean (i.e. picked up, beds made - NEAT)?????
If you don't have children with neat rooms, what do you remember your parents doing to make sure your room was clean when you were younger? My room was always spotless. I don't remember my mother threatening death, but it was never a question - it was the only way it was ever going to be. Yes, I had my own room, making it easier. But, my two brothers shared a room and it was also spotless. I never understood the whole issue with other kids having to clean their rooms - ours always were picked up and clean. My mom didn't do it - we did. We knew it was expected of us.
It's expected of my children, too. However, it's a daily struggle around here. How do you all do it or isn't it being done?
