Please help - how do you get your kids to tidy up?
My kids rooms are always messy and toys tend to get pushed under the bed. you know "out of sight out of mind" kind of thing I'll blitz them sometimes and sort it all out but it don't stay tidy long. Downstairs though when they have stuff out and have finished with it i won't let them get something new out until the old ones been put away. If they won't put it away I threaten them with a black bag and tell them I'll put it out with the rubbish, it usually works.
