I have always heard that the most creative people
are sometimes very messy.
I want to be an understanding parent. I want to understand that there are more important things in life than having a neat room. I want to be the type of parent that fosters creativity and freedom and the right to a little space to call your own......messy or neat. However, at this time in my life, I just want to see this room clean and neat and decluttered.
What I am I to do?
I mean, I can say, "Clean up your room! You can't leave this house until everything is in its place!"
That works for the moment.
Or I could clean it up myself.
That works for the moment too.
Or I can just leave it alone and .......close the door.
Which is also messy and cluttered ...... and creative!
