FALSE.

You are more likely to have happy children and your sanity when – surprise, surprise – your house is clean.

My house isn’t spotless but when needed, I can make it look presentable in 30 mins. I don’t follow an intense chore schedule, I simply don’t let clutter take over (I GET RID OF IT) and clean as needed.

  1. You are more likely to have happy children and your sanity when – surprise, surprise – your house is clean.

    Yes. Parent with 1-2 kids has the luxury of choosing 2 options (they can just outwait the train wreck anyway). But 4 kids or more? All 3 is the only option.

  2. The key is a balance. You may not be able to have the spotless house you cultivated when nesting… but other than in the last few months of pregnancy you don’t really care as much if you spy a small stain on a chair or a hair on a pillow. Likewise with kids: they can’t afford to ALWAYS be happy. We need to teach them that sometimes immediate gratification is not the best thing for them, and encourage them to be healthy first. Too much cleanliness or too much worry about being a child’s best friend is sure to drive anyone completely bonkers!
