    Why is it, if your house is clean and organised, you are viewed as being a 'good' parent?

    Is it society, or are WE ourselves our own worse critics?

    Who are the better parents, those who bring up their kids in a clean and tidy home, or those that bring up their kids in a filthy, tip?  Generally, it is the former.  Of course, this has to be tempered with the treatment of the kids; the mother in a clean and tidy home may be a child beater, and the mother in the tip may show lots of loving attention.

    a perfectly clean home, can be only achieved by those super mums types.  but dare we not have all our washing folded, or every cup washed we are open to criticism past the state of our kitchen or laundry...its now open war fare on our parenting skills.

    I guess its easy to sit back and judge, to let the  imagination wander into the realms of what other things that parent may not be doing...

    but as long as they are loved with all their needs meet what should it matter how tidy their enviroment is or isnt...

    Kids don't care about the cleanliness of their home, so long as it isn't a dump. Kids like love, attention, and understanding. That's what counts.
