So to put the background in a nut shell, i've had DS2 longer then i've had DS1. DS1 just turned 5 and DS2 is almost 4. Before i inherited DS1, DS2 usually would clean his room by himself with very few issues.
But now that I have DS1, DS2 basically refuses to help his brother clean the room. DS1 will ask him "Please help me clean". and DS2 will say "No. I want you to do it". So DS1 DOES do it most of the time, all by himself.
I have tried making them take turns cleaning the room, i've tried having one clean half and the other clean half, i've tried staying near the bedroom the whole time they clean so that i can constantly remind DS2 to clean. And i'm trying to come up with things that will make it clear to DS2 that he can't keep doing this, but at the same time is not a punishment to DS1.
