It seems like all I do is clean and do laundry and never truly get to enjoy the house being in a pristine state for longer than 5 minutes at a time. Then the kids come and mess everything up, books, games, and etc are strewn everywhere. The last month or so my 12 year old refuses to pitch in and help clean at all. I can tolerate her room being messy, but the other areas of the house I cannot and its mostly her things that are laying around, school books and backpacks and such. How do I get her up and cleaning without a fight?
