Laurie and Tim's children say they are also suffering as a result of the clutter. They have not had a single birthday party at their home or had any friends over because Tim and Laurie refuse to have anyone see the state of their house.

Especially cluttered is the children's play area. "Every day that we want to play we go digging through [the toys]. I don't like living in clutter," six-year-old Sierra says. "I would like to have friends over for a play date and I can't. We would trip and fall down and get a bad 'owie'. I go to my friend's house because they can't come here because it's too messy."

Watch Sierra's plea for help

Peter is concerned that the children may grow up to think that living in clutter is normal.
