i told them 2 hrs ago to clean and everytime i leave the room they start goofing off and forget what they are suppose to be doing, so now the room is worse than ever. i shouldnt have to stand over them and tell them every 10 seconds to clean. it they would just done it it would of taken maybe 15 minutes. i had to help my 2 yr old with her room.
and any ideas on how to get them to get moving faster without hounding them? this happens everytime. even in school the teacher has to stand over them to do their assignments as soon as they help another student my boys start doodling or bouncin around....i need help

Make it a game, set a timer and have them compete...who can pick up the most things and put away before the time goes off.
Play I SPY, look around to see what's on the floor, then say you want to see who can pick up something blue and put it away, etc.
