After watching last night's episode, I think the mess does bother the kids. I always thought the house was messy not dirty but after what Zack said about the upstairs bathroom, it's dirty, too! Ewww! I agree that the kids need to help with the mess, but it seems to me that the kids were never taught. They need to be taught to hang up their clothes, pick up their belongings and avoid putting things off until it becomes overwhelming. I'm not sure if Amy would be any neater if she were average height. Even if you are 4 feet tall, you should clean your bathrooms! Also, dont you think once she saw that mess on TV, she would be embarrassed and do something about it???
