Saying that "mess" is what the room "is" can infer "badness". Using this and similar inferential labels as if they were space/time facts is to enter the VRP triangle as a Persecutor. If I say what the "camera could observe" (an Observation in Green Language) the child will be more likely to see the same space/time conditions free of a reactive defense of self-esteem. Further, he (or she) will be more likely to participate in a change process.
