I’d never clean my kids’ rooms for them.

Did you ever promise yourself this before you became a mom?

No..because I knew I'd clean it until my Son was old enough to do it Himself.
He's been cleaning His room since age four; He's six now.

No, because I knew that up until a certain point my kids wouldn't be able to clean it themselves; and also, I figured there may also be times when for whatever reason they may not be able to.

 No, but my kids clean their own room and are in charge of it. But if it does not get cleaned on time, I do take everything in their away from them. But not because I just want to clean it.

My bff dd is almost 8 she has never cleaned her own room once in her life, or cleaned anything, no chores no nothing her mom believe she nees to be a kid so she does it, it irritates me, but hey not my problem. lol

No. I still do it ...well partly they chip in now as they get older. They will eventually get to do it themselves of course. My mom never gave me chores or taught me how to do housework,I never want my kids to be that way. Dh literally had to teach me everything when we first got married.

Yes, I said that, and I have not, well when they were small "we picked up the room together".

As teens they had to do it themselves. They had a time limit and if they didn't do it, I went in with those large green/black trash bags and throw everything they had on the floor in them and was heading for the trash. 

Then always met the deadline after that!

Yes! But I am a clean freak, so of course after the kids are down sleeping, I run around and play clean up for a few.
