Do you intervene or leave it to children to keep their rooms clean?
Almost any kid can make a room messy. It seems it's only a special, rare breed of child who consistently keeps a bedroom or other kid-area clean. What do you do about messy kids' rooms? Strictly enforce a cleanliness standard? Or let them learn a lesson by not getting involved? Or do you periodically do the dirty work yourself to help your kid start from a clean slate? It's "Cleanliness is next to godliness" vs. "She didn't make her bed, so let her lie in it." Which side are you on? Leave a comment below.
