What happens when you TELL your daughter or son to clean their room?
My daughter would always say, "Sure Dad" and never clean her room.
TELLING your child to clean their room is a monologue, a one-way conversation, where you talk and they don't listen.
Nagging never works.
I know, because I was never able to persuade my daughter to clean her room.
Today, I know if you are trying to influence someone, you have to make them think it was their idea.
You have to engage them in a two-way conversation and let them know what's in it for them.
Let them know their room is your personal space, a reflection of who you are.
Keeping it clean can be a source of pride and a way to express your individuality and maturity.
A clean room can make a good impression on friends.
