Teenagers rooms....

Why do teenage girls insist in living in rooms like this? Is it just me, or is anyone else fed up of telling them to "Go and tidy your room"? Although I do like a house to look like it's lived in, as opposed to looking like a Show Home or something out of OK Magazine, I do expect it to be kept tidy, so if I do need to find an item, I know I have allocated it a place and should therefore be where I last left it. In a teenagers rooms this is an impossible task. How is anyone supposed to find anything under a mountain of clothes (as seen in exhibit a below). I do respect a teenagers privacy, but when i have plucked up the courage to venture into the unknown abyss, I have been faced with the prospect of climbing the North face of the Eiger to get from one side of the room to the other to carry out the simple task of opening the window, in order to let in some fresh air and let out the unknown odour which has been residing in there for some time.
If anyone has any solution to this problem, please send your answers on a postcard and please get the postman to deliver and hand it to me personally, cos if it ends up in said teenagers bedroom, it may never ever be seen again!!!

Surely this is a crack den not a teenage bedroom?

As a teenage girl with a very tidy room I feel I should protest. We're not all like that I promise! ;) My room is always exceptionally organised and very clean!

However an ex-boyfriend of mine had such a messy room that I used to tidy it for him. Naturally this made me very grumpy but it was the lesser of 2 evils! In the end it got so bad he just cornered off a section for me to keep all my stuff in, and left the rest as some kind of lucky dip?!!

hey baldeagle simple answer, ready,; you are getting married next year, right basically you are working, your wife to be is working, you cant clean your daughters room, your wife to be, wont or should not be exspected to do it, the answer is, your daughter has to do it, when her clothes have run out, and she gets fed up with the mess, rememberthe key word is friends , she will have a massive tidy up, its a horrible phase to go through with your loved ones, but its gotta be done, here if you need advise, i have been there, pulling my own hair out , good luck.

reason with her say to her you will treat her to something that will make her happy, e,g, a mobile 10.00 top up, gives her incentive, basically bribary can work, if you find something they want but cannot afford, sorry maybe its called reasoning with them, but it did work, or do what i did when you know her friends are comming to the house, dont give in and tidy her room, dont give in, she will thank you later, my daughter did, we all need to learn a lesson sometimes.

Personally I don't think there is any excuse. I know folks who have put their clean clothes in the washing basket to be ironed again instead of hanging them up.

I remember it well. My daughters bedroom was disgusting, so much so I refused to go into it at all!!! I was sick of saying..please tidy your room.
I do have some sweet anecdote now! My daughter has a daughter and I revel in the delight of hearing her telling her daughter to tidy her room and she gets the same response I did... a grunt and then nothing! It makes me laugh!!

this is good for a teenagers room, sorry to say but i have experienced myself worse, honest, this is just untidy, where is the month old food, pot noodles pots, takeaways, pizza boxes, hate letters to ex boyfriends, leaving home letters etc. dont whatever you do tidy it up for her, learn from me, i did it for a while and it got even in a worse mess, trust me this is normal, boys are not so bad, but still its life, funny thing is i dont think this is the norm when i was growing up, my mum has three of us girls as teenagers and we shared 2 bedrooms thank god i had my little box room, and i would never have got away with it in that mess, also i came from a family where mum was a midwife, sister was a ward sister, i was at school, just was not the done thing, but i have got to say, stopped doing the cleaning left everything in her room, one day she said mum the room is a mess and i have got friends comming back after school, it would have been easy to do it, however a lesson had...[more]

Oh dear! Yes, sometimes our teenagers do have a lot to answer for don't they? If it's any consolation, I don't think this problem is unique by far, albeit the picture does look quite extreme! I think in this case I would use what I call 'the trade off technique'. Having 2 children of my own, eldest son being 16, it has proven to work on more than a few occasions when needed. The trade off being helping together to tidy up her room but then your daughter helping you with one of those chores on your list. Hopefully, that way, she will end up with a tidy bedroom (and quite enjoy it) you will end up finishing a task in double time and you would of probably spent quite a fun time together! Problem solved! 'maybe'!
By the way, if you find any old crusts, they might be from TGV's old sandwiches!!

I think you may well find there are a couple of boys hidden amongst the clothes. I remember hiding in bedrooms like this for weeks without being found. Used to take my own sandwiches.

This picture looks very familiar. But in my case,like BC, It was my Sons room. My Daughter always kept hers well organised.The answer to your problem baldeagle I think. Is to tell her you will clean it up and DUMP everything in the dustbin.All best.

Yes it's amazing what dubious items i find in my 17 year old son's bedroom, though i have to say compared to this photo his room is like a palace.

Thank your lucky stars you're dealing with a teenage girl's room. A teenage boy's rooms has a an equally high pile of nasty looking tissues.
