Tink is seven, going to be eight. I have put her disaster of a bedroom in basket C to save my sanity. Most days, any mess that she leaves out in the front room gets tossed into her bedroom. Fine with me if she wants to have her room a sty, but our living quarters are going to be clean. Now, while I am OK with her toys and papers all over her room, I am not okay with her clothes all over the place. Mostly because she will wear something for about 20 minutes, change her mind and then change her clothes, but leave whatever she takes off on her floor instead of putting it away. Which means that it needs to be washed even thought it is relatively clean because it is a wrinkled mess. Which means money out of my pocket since we have quarter laundry facilities. I suppose that in theory I can make her pay for her own laundry out of her allowance, but since I am as broke as I am, she rarely gets an allowance (by the way, she does not do anything to EARN one even if I could afford it). SO. My question is, am I "rescuing" her (at her age level) if I go into her room daily and put her clothes in the appropriate place? The other option of course is to let her go in wrinkly clothes, and while I know that it is not a reflection on me, well it kinda is. I know that she needs to learn to be responsible, and maybe if she had to sit out from a football game because her uniform was dirty she would learn it. I am simply afraid that instead she will decide to quit cheering (putting me out that much more money) and not learn the lesson. This may be petty, but I am really serious.
