Do you make your kids make up their beds every morning? My son is 9 years old and I was making him do this, but I recently talked to a psychologist and he told me to let him be messy. I also make him clear up his dishes after eating (put them in the sink) and he still won't do it if I don't remind him. I also make him take out the trash once a week and he always has to be reminded for this too!
My husband thinks I should leave him alone and let him be a boy, but I just want him to learn responsibility, and I'm worried if I let him be messy he's going to turn into a slob like my husband, who I hate picking up after.
