When I was a kid my brother and I were expected to do things like set the table for dinner, clear our plates ect. Cleaning our rooms, however, was not a battle my single mother wanted to deal with. So the rule became if your room is a mess, shut the door and don't expect mom to help when you can't find your uniform or homework or you have no clean laundry. And my room was a mess, for a while.
