My daughter is almost 9 and I am finding it increasingly harder to get her to tidy her room. She used to listen to me and when I asked her to do it, she would. It was part of a routine where she would do this of a morning once ready for school or when we got home while I made dinner. Now I find that she just mucks about and not a lot gets done. She seems to collect a lot of ‘treasures’ (which to me is just junk) and amasses a lot of stuff that she haphazardly puts all over her room, if that wasn’t bad enough, the dirty laundry is driving me nuts – the hamper is in the bathroom next door! We have a rewards chart, which initially worked great and now she just doesn’t seem to care. What am I doing wrong? Any advice?
