Gouri Dange on how to deal with a very messy child
My nine-year-old child is untidy beyond belief—even his aunt, uncle and grandparents are shocked. He gets remarks about this from school too—for his handwriting, and his crumpled schoolbag and uniform (crumpled even before he gets off the school bus in the morning). His small cupboard and desk are a mess. He leaves his things scattered on the floor. He often wants to draw or do his homework sitting on the floor because there is no place on his desk or bed. We are tired of telling him, and it makes no difference to him. He is a messy eater too and he breaks toys and other things as well. Please advise.
