  • Cuz he's a kid. It's normal. You have to instill the importance of being clean and picking up after yourself from a very early age or else you'll always have problems with it.

  • My daughter likes a clean room but my son doesn't. Like you said it's normal. He has never liked to pick up his room since he was 3. Lol!!!
