How do you get someone that isnt a very tidy person to CLEAN theri room?

My SD that is 18, NM and will be having a child here in about 5 months ahs no idea of cleanliness. Her room is worse than ever and isnt suttable for a baby. She has so much crap on the floor and everywhere, she makes the show "hoarders" look like nothing. There is room no in her room for anything for a baby! All she cares about is her and her self.

  • Tell her to clean her room.. Don't ask her. TELL HER. she is too old to be living like that.

  • We have told her that she needs to clean this room and to get it done pronto! She is 18 not married and lives with us, and not working.

  • be the adult and make her keep up with it! It is unacceptable that a child would live like that! Good luck!

  • Tell her to clean her room or find her own place. Give her a deadline date and if she doesn't have it clean - tell her to get out. Sounds like she needs a serious wake up call to grow up and this may be just the thing she needs. She probably thinks nothing is going to happen to her if she doesn't do as you tell her, make sure she realizes this isn't the case!
