I mean cleaning up after your kids and putting their laundry away. I hang up the clothes and fold them, but make them put it away. Problem is I go upstairs and its in piles around the room. I know some parents who put everything away and STILL clean their DCs rooms. My DS is 13 and my DD is almost 9 and Ill tell ya what, I am tired of cleaning their room and then A DAY later its trashed again!!! For DS I just let it go. As long as their arent dishes and garbage, he can walk on crap all day long. But I am tired of it and plan on laying down the law this weekend. I am tired of both of them saying its clean and then find everything in corners or under beds!!!!! Seriously I rarely go upstairs anymore cause it just makes me so angry!!!Answer Question

Well, my daughter is 7. I feel like i started chores a lil late, but I'm working on it. I let HER pic what type of chore she wants to do. I still do all her laundry though. But, she has gotten great at vacuuming, & moping. If i give her some pledge & a rag, she'll dust all day. She also loves cleaning windows, & wiping cabinets down. Anything that she can spray & wipe, she loves. She DOES have a hard time cleaning her room though. She just stands there & says "i don't know what to do" so i show her, then next thing ya know I've picked it all up. I say "can you not see the trash on the floor, is it invisible to you?" But at least she makes up for it by helping me clean OTHER parts of the house. Baby steps i guess.......

My boys are seven and four and I have them clean up after themselves. They only thing I still do for them is putting away the laundry. I will start them on dishes when eight and my seven year old helps daddy with the garbage. They don't get to play, watch T.V. etc. until they are done doing what needs to be.
