My house is disgusting!

I am 13 years old and I am naturally a very organized person. Im very mature and independent for my age and although my room gets messy very easily, it also gets tidied even quicker because I mentally cannot cope with being surrounded by mess. Both my parents work full time and neither are very fond of their job. I understand I am very fortunate to have two fully supportive parents who do more than the average amount for me, but sometimes I find myself becoming overly frustrated with my home. I don’t want to call my parents lazy, as they both juggle working full time, being a taxi for my sister and I as we both have a very hectic lifestyle and managing 3 children, and at the end of the day it would make me feel guilty for accusing them of being anything of the kind.
My house is a pigsty 90% of the time, and I seem to be the only person who cares. Our shower door has been broken for years and our backroom is used for what I call ‘mess with no home or purpose’. I feel embarrassed to have any friends over for I fear they think my home environment uncomfortably horrible. Whats worse, is if I ever try to nudge my parent or tell them that things need to be done, they become sensitive and get angry at me. As I say I’m only 13 and cant do anything drastic towards my home, but I cant shower and feel properly clean, and food sits on the side for weeks at a time after being consumed. I try my best to do my part for the house, but I have school work to do.

    There could be lots of reasons why even mental even just lazyness. But Why don’t you clean it up? Why not in corage your siblings to help? Why not ask your parents if everyone in the house have a cleaning day where everyone cleans all day buy the evening order pizza and all watch a movie. That’s what we do. Also I had a friend who was 14 her and her siblings had to do all the cleaning the parents only worked and cooked dinner.

    I try to do my part around the house and encourage my siblings to do the same, but I do school from 8:30 till
    3 and then I go to dance for multiple hours at a time, by the time I even get time to breath let alone get pizza and watch a movie, Im reminded of how much homework I have to do. My mum is always at the computer working and my dad is always at work. There is no point at which we can all get together and clean because we are all just too busy. My brother is 7 so he cant properly clean yet, even though he is trying his best and my sister is in her GCSE year so has work to do. Thanks tho

    Life gets busy sometimes. Set a timer for 2 or 5 minutes pick a spot to . It’s great your brother is helping, let him help, he’s learning he’ll get better without his help it will take longer. Have a family meeting n tell everyone how you feel. Good luck 👍🏼
