Do you think that if I forced the kids to stay in a 4x4 square foot space that I made by taping duct tape to the floor, that my house would stay clean? I mean, it's not my mess that I see everywhere. I don't drag my blankets downstairs to watch cartoons (even though the t.v. is supposed to be off limits). I don't kick my shoes off underneath the kitchen table. I don't try to sneak cereal in the hood of my sweatshirt, so I can eat it later, while hiding in my bedroom closet. I don't leave my coats and gloves outside on the fence so the squirrels can run away with them. I don't wipe toothpaste all over the bathroom mirrors. I definitely don't pee in my bed and then try to disguise it by adding every other blanket in the house on top of it.
So, if I forced them to stay in their duct tape square, do you think I would have a clean house?
