That's why you should make children help at an early age. I agree with jeck. It's not to late. You need to tell them what you expect them to do. Make a chore list so there is no misunderstanding. Tell then what privileges will be taken away if they don't complete the list. Most important of all is stick to what you say. You have to follow through with the consequences every time so they no you are serious.
