How the heck do you keep your house clean!?
I just can't.. and it stressed me out! I have 4 girls.. 6, 5, 2, and 2 weeks. It doesn't matter how much I remind the older two not to throw their trash down or to pick up a toy after they're finished.. they don't. Are there any methods I could use to keep my house a little more organized?
well all but the baby is definitely old enough to help you out. you could make them clean up their toys before dinnertime and then if they choose not to, they don't get dessert. i think it helps alot to give them responsibility that comes with consequences if they don't follow through with it. my 2yo is in charge of trash or putting things in the hamper. the 5yo is in charge of picking up toys and putting his dirty dishes in the dishwasher. i also have a 10 mo, but she can't do much but make a mess yet lol. but i will find a job for her when she is older. my boys know if the family room is not clean before dinner they will not get a treat afterwards. it has worked well so far lol.
