- shined the mirror
Okay, now to my big question. HOW do you get kids to stay tidy and not totally trash their rooms everyday?! We do require them to pick up their rooms almost every day, but they still end up looking like the before photos here. We've tried taking their things away when they are left out (yes, we're mean parents like that), taking things away with the opportunity for them to get them returned after a set amount of time, and on our worst days, just closing the door and hoping tomorrow will be better. I feel like the problem really lies in how MUCH stuff they have, but we really rarely buy toys for them. Another part of the problem is that they never want to part with anything. What do you do to help and teach and train your kids to be responsible for their spaces and their things? Even if I can't solve this problem in the very near future, I am happy with how the room looks today.
