Fed-up soldier dad moves daughter’s entire messy room to driveway

One Georgia man’s answer to his teenage daughter’s refusal to clean her room has neighborhood tongues wagging, and parents thinking, “Hmm, not a bad idea.”

A Fort Stewart soldier tried everything he could — reasoning, cajoling and even threatening — to get his daughter Haley, an honor student, to clean up her room. But nothing seemed to work, according to NBC Savannah affiliate WSAV-TV.

That’s when he took what his daughter called “extreme” measures, and moved her entire bedroom out to the driveway. Along with her bed dresser and nightstand was a large sign proclaiming, “Haley, room moved to driveway. Clean it next time.”

The father didn’t want to be identified when he spoke with WSAV:

He says he had warned her he didn’t want to treat her like a soldier but when she wouldn’t listen he decided to send her a message.

The father told us that his daughter was initially upset and said that the move was “extreme.”

It all worked out in the end, though. Dad hired a painter to come in and give her room a fresh coat of paint, and she;ll be moving back in soon afterwards with her vow to keep it spruced up.
