I do. Once a month or so I will clean and dust it, and throw stuff out.
They keep it tidied up in between times, but then it starts to slide and soon they don't know how to get it cleaned again. So I just get them back on track and then they take good care of it.
If they weren't such packrats I bet I would rarely have to do it lol.

So, do you clean up in there?

No, they don't want me in there or they won't have much left. Sometimes I do have to be standing in the door and say do this or do that. My oldest son actually keeps his room pretty clean. My 9 yr old son..he likes his little cars...all over his floor.

Always if I want it clean usually I just have to help Xandi once every 3 months to get it back on track, my oldest is just not interested it drives me nuts. Thayer has no clue and if I didn't clean his once every two weeks I would be scared of what I would find, the younger ones are not really in there rooms to mess them so its not to bad.

I use to clean there room all the time but now that the boys are 16 and 18 I dont do it anymore! I leave the mess all up to them to clean. They usually get it clean and tidy when they want friends to come over.

As for the girls...well, Amber-Rae still doesnt sleep in her room (long story) so her room is always clean, I just have to clean up the mess she makes around the house. As for Alyssa, shes only 15 months and still in the same room as me so I clean up after her of course.

My kids are old enough to clean up after themselves, so their rooms are their responsibilities. They have to clean their rooms twice a day... once after school and once before going to bed.
