  • Good for you! You are being a responsible parent and working hard on raising two responsible children. Tell them that they are part of the household and responsible for keeping the household running smoothly, which includes doing their share of the housework. They should each have their chores and do them.They want to be treated like adults, they should learn to behave and must take responsibility. Their own bedrooms and bathrooms? You don't ask them to change your bed, clean your bedroom, clean your bathroom, ask them why you should do theirs- you are already supporting them financially.

  • Ha! That's cute! You put the question in the pre-schoolers section! You know what you need to do? Take pictures when they're rooms are really gross. My mom did that to me and she actually showed my boyfriend. I was so embarassed! That changed my attitude quick!
