If you’re a parent, keeping your place clean can seem impossible . . . because you’ve got someone right behind you making it a MESS again.
A new poll found the average parent can only keep a room totally clean for 17 minutes. Then the mess starts building again. And the MESSIEST age is seven years old.
Here are four more stats on messy kids . . .
1. Two-thirds of parents said there’s currently a mess somewhere in their home that they’ve been meaning to clean up, but haven’t.
2. The rooms that stay clean for the shortest amount of time are: The living room . . . bathroom . . . kitchen . . . master bedroom . . . and kids’ bedrooms.
3. The average household with kids does 2,184 pounds of laundry a year. To put that in terms your kid will understand . . . it’s right around what a rhinoceros weighs.
4. The top chores kids actually ENJOY helping with are loading the dishwasher, clearing dishes, and helping you cook.
