How often do you make your kids clean their room?

Is it a daily responsibility, weekly or never? How much do you expect cleaned up?

My two boys share a room and it's like a full-time job just keeping on top of them. I always feel like it's too much for two little boys, but it's the only room in the house where they have their toys (our house is small), and they spend a lot of time playing together in there. Some days you can't walk in there and I get tired of getting on their cases.

  • My son is responsible for making his bed, getting his clothes put away, keeping his floor picked up, and putting dirty clothes in his hamper, he does these things daily or as needed.

  • They need to learn that if they are finished with one toy, put it up before getting another one out. Clothes only go in dressers or hampers. Beds are to be spread up before leaving the room in the morning. Sheets get chanced once a week. Clothes are washed (by the children) on an as needed basis. We deep clean once a month and do a more than just pick up once a week. We also go through clothes every 6 months and toys once a year.

  • I try to do it at least once during the week, and then on the weekends is when I run the vacuum and clean under the beds. Most of the playing is done in the living room right now, so the bedrooms don't get too messy
