Parenting Tip #308 – If You Clean It, They Will Come

clean it parenting tip

An actual conversation that happened in the house.

Her: “He’s having a playdate tomorrow. His room is a mess. You should clean it.”


(5-minute stare down)

Me: “Oh you were being for real?”

Cleaning before a playdate is like brushing and flossing before letting an MMA fighter knock your teeth out.

It’s pointless!

It’s a waste of time!

No one notices!

These are all things I yelled in my mind.

“Fine, I’ll clean it.”
