Re: Do you clean your teen's room?

I don't have a teen, but I think some reasonable expectations would be:

Dirty clothes in a hamper daily
No food left out
No garbage on the floor, etc.
Put his own clothes away (weekly? twice a week?)
Floor cleaned well enough that either you or he can sweep/vacuum (weekly)
Change his own sheets (weekly)

That's not a ton of work for a teen, it should only take a couple hours at the most every week and will keep his room fairly clean.
