Does anyone else's kids do this when it's time to clean up/do chores?
I tell my 10yo that she needs to clean up her room. Instead she spends an hour organizing her book shelf then whines she's been cleaning all day except she hasn't actually done anything yet. It's really annoying.
Her room will be a mess along with other rooms and I'll tell the kids to get their rooms clean and she will choose to clean up the few things in the living room and then gets mad when I tell her to go clean her room. She always says, "but I just cleaned the living room." Yes, but she still has to clean her room. She wastes more time picking up stuff that can wait than doing the important stuff. She just doesn't get it no matter how I try to explain that organizing can wait until AFTER the toys are actually picked up.
