Teens and cleanliness

Jodi - posted on 08/31/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




My 14 (will be 15 in 3 months) year old son has a bad habit of cleaning up after himself! I've told him no eating or drinking in his room, yet I will find multiple empty or half empty Gatorade bottles and 3 or 4 glasses he has drank from. Also wrappers of eaten pop tarts, chewing gum, ect .. Because he gets off the bus before I get home from work im not here to supervise or tell him don't eat or drink upstairs, he sneaks it up there forgets to clean it up and he is busted!! Anyone else have trouble with this? Also just cleaning his room in general is like making him work a 16 hour day in the sun w no water or break to him it's just such a burden! He's very active in sports and activities and social skills are great so he isn't lazy . I need advice or just wonder if any mothers out there are/have delt w this?
