I once asked a friend to read some of my daughters sloppy homework and we played it up big time and pretended that she couldn't read it b/c it was too messy. My daughter was embarrassed b/c it wasn't just me telling her that her work was messy but now someone she really didn't know was telling her the same thing - it really hit home and she took it more seriously.

We didn't try to make her feel bad, we were very matter-of-fact and just let her know that there will be times when people other than mom, dad, and teachers will need to read her work and neatness counts in the real world. I think she got the point...
