Re: Do you make your kids

Yes , I think it is the respectful thing to do , now if the host says not to worry about it I will normally ask if they are absoloutely sure and if they say yes then i dont force the kids to. However generally they'll do it on their own now - I just need to figure out how to get them to do it at home!!! Maybe if I redocorate and rename the dogs each day?

Yes, but I help out too. And I expect (and will say so) guests to help pick up at our house before they leave as well. Of course, this applies to children old enough to understand and actually do it, and I'm always there helping out.

**YES**

We don't even offer....we just do it!

I have family memebers that come, play, eat (uninvited), then leave the mess behind!....Blows me throught the roof.

Absolutely, and when other kids come here they have to clean up before they leave.

Re: Do you make your kids

Our baby will definately be told that she has to help pick up. I have had toys at my home for years for our friends and family with children when they come over, but I dont wait for the parents to say anything, I stipulate this as soon as they come over and start acting board. "You can play toys but you have to pick up whatever you take out" this is meant for the children but more for their parents. So I would never expect anything less of my children!

Re: Do you make your kids

well, I usually do the cleaning, but yes. My daughter is a year and half and is still a bit clueless about picking thing up. Usually that just means that we put things back into the playroom, since her little friend's playroom is messy (but all the mess is contained there). Oh, and if she is playing with nontoy items (we like to pull out spices from bins, take magnets off the fridge, etc) I of course put those things in their proper place to and try to redirect her if it's upsetting the host/hostess.

Yes!!! Even if the mom says it is ok. I still make her pick it up. I made her pick them up every night before she went to bed when we stayed at my best friends house visiting.

Re: Do you make your kids

Yes-they also help pick up the toys at church nursery Now obviously my 2 year old ds isn't going to help as much as my 5 yr old dd but I'll point out one or two things for him to pick up, just so he gets into the habit of helping clean up.
