Many artciles about messy homes hurting kids intelligence
Over the years many people have posted articles on this forum about a messy house hurting kids intelligence and grades. Many of the articles stated that kids with messy moms did worse in school. I don't know about you, but these articles caused me lots of sleepless nights worrying that I'm harming my kids.
I just want to follow up on those artciles, that I started reading when my kids were 5, 3 and 1. They are now 14, 12, and 9 and all do very well in school. Our districut has a "gifted" program for 4th - 6th grade and are all in it. My oldest is going to high school next year & will be taking all advanced classes. I'm not bragging - believe me, these kids amaze me that they are succeeding in spite of their disorganized, messy home and forgetful mom! Not bragging - offering reassurance that a messy home won't harm your kids as much as the "experts" say.
Now, if they'd grown up in an immaculate home - they might be Dougie Howser, right? HA
