How to Get Your Teenager(s) to Clean Their Room

Posted by Cleanercleaner on January 21st, 2014

When it comes to figuring out teenagers, it’s never easy. Sometimes they are super high on life, ready to take on the world. Other times it seems like nothing in their lives are going right. What’s even more frustrating is trying to convince them that it’s important for them to keep their room neat and clean.  For the most part they think it is annoying, boring and it takes up a lot of precious time they could spend sitting around the house doing absolutely nothing!

Let’s take a look at some things you might be able to do to help persuade your teenagers to clean their room:

  • Take Small Steps-Start by asking them to make up their bed. This simple task can take them less than 2 minutes to do and it can make a messy room look a little bit cleaner. 
  • Buy Them Some Headphones and an MP3 Player-I know this might sound like you’re bribing them to clean their room, but if they are going to sit around the house listening to their iPod all day long they might as well be cleaning whilst they doing it right? And the new electronics might be motivation!
  • Don’t Allow Them to Eat in Their Room-Easier said than done, I know. But it’s really a good idea to prevent them from eating in their room, even for afternoon snacks. 
  • Ask Them to Straighten up Their Room When They Ask You for something-So your teenager wants to go to that party this weekend?  Here’s your perfect opportunity to ask them to do something for you first, like clean up in their room. 
  • Make a List for Them to Complete over Several Days, Not All at Once-Sometimes they might feel overwhelmed with the task of cleaning their room.  Don’t ask them to do it all at once. Instead break it up over several days and mark things off the list once they’ve done it.
