  • I never do that. I always hold my ground. Mom's these days aren't firm with their kids. Everything is a big game to the kids and they walk all over their parents. My nephews do that and it drives me nuts. When I said I want a clean room, I WANT IT SPOTLESS, by my kids. I didn't make their mess, I'm definately not going to clean it up.

  • For me it is because I have an ocd issue. Like I can't stand wrinkles on their beds. I let them do it then when they go to school I "fix" it. lol. The worst thing in the world for me is a towel folded the wrong way, or something crooked on the wall, or how they mess up their whole dresser drawer when they are looking for a certain shirt. Ugh, wish I could just let it go. :)

  • Because they want it done and they cant stand their messy room any more, lol.

  • Tell them to do it, so they have some sense of responsibility, do it because they (moms) canĀ“t stand the mess. I am guessing because my only son is too small for any of this..
