I have a 7 year old daughter who is very sweet and smart. Right now I seem to have problems getting her to listen to me when I ask her to do things. For example, I ask her to clean her room after school. I am at work during that time. When I come home her room is still a mess. I then have to ask her again to clean her room. When I come back to check on her she's playing piano or just fooling around and haven't touched a thing. I don't spank her for that but I would like you all to share your ideas on how I could get her to do what she's told without hurting her feelings. She has an autistic brother and a baby sister and they're not told to do anything, so I don't want her to feel bad. I am trying to teach her some responsibility, but at the same time I try to give her room for freedom.
