  1. That’s how I handle the kiddos keeping their room clean too. My teen daughter is going through a phase where she doesn’t mind messy and to prevent it from making me crazy, I keep her door closed a lot. 😉 I believe she’ll get better soon…both of her older brothers went through the messy phase too, and they’re neat as can be now. 🙂 Until then, I keep the Excederin close by and try to realize her idea of clean is not the same as mine, and that’s (usually) okay. 🙂

  2. You made some great points here. I agree with you that each child should be treated like an individual. I have five very different and unique children. Having a clean and tidy home is important to me but even more important is teaching my children responsibility. If I follow through and make sure my kids clean their bedrooms it teaches them to take responsibility for their actions. If they have a messy room they know that mom is going to make them clean it up before they can play games on the computer. I also make them help out with other chores around the house. I am teaching them about teamwork, hard work, and responsibility. True, I don’t expect them to clean in the same way that I do, however as a family unit we are all required to put in our fair share and help each other out.

    Great post, Brandy! Have a terrific weekend.
