Ever since she was little, I have always encouraged her to keep her room clean. I would always make it fun and she used to actually keep her room clean. Now that she is older, I have absolutely no luck. It wouldn't be so bad if it was just clothes taking up space on her floor. She won't even throw her garbage in the garbage can. She has one in her room and it's never used. She uses her floor. It is absolutely disgusting! I have tried numerous things with her but no matter what i try she continues on with this. Allowance doesn't work. Taking away all her things accept the bare minimum doesn't work. Praise of her room being clean ( after we clean it) only lasts a couple of days before it's back to being a mess. I have tried a few other things and so has her father and nothing seems to work. PLEASE HELP me help my daughter to keep her room clean.
