I tell my daughter to clean her room and that she can not do anything else until it is done and she will stay in there for a month. I just can not find that "thing" that will motivate her. She has her 8th grade dance this Friday. I thought on Tuesday that I could tell her that if she didn't get it clean, she was not going. Well it isn't clean. Now I feel bad that I have to follow through and not let her go to this dance. It breaks my heart but if I give in then it will set a standard that I will never be able to correct.
