Question: Should I...
Total Votes: 61
My kids are 5 and 10 and have to share a room. Once every 6 months to a year, I spend 1-2 days completely cleaning their room. I sort and organize everything into separate bins, boxes and drawers. (Here comes the aggravating part) Within a day or two, they empty everything! I get so frustrated that I refuse to clean it. Slowly, they will shove some of it into boxes and push it under a bed or into a closet where it sits until my next cleaning spell.
I have a friend whose son dumps every one of his toy bins just about every week, sometimes multiple times a week and she picks all of it up. She can't believe how horrible my kids room looks and I can't believe that she doesn't make her boy pick up his own toys. I have told my kids that the next time I clean their room it will be with garbage bags and everything that I have to pick up will either go to charity or to the dumpster.
Does anyone have thoughts? Advice? Some garbage bags and a shovel? LOL
