When teaching the key is to be consistant. Also, be gentle. Screaming and yelling will not work. I found husbands are like children. When my DH and I were 1st married, he left everything everywhere. I would call him from basement or whatever room he was in to come and clean up his mess. One day, which was the last day I had to call and remind him, he was at a friends house. I came home from work and found the bedroom a mes with his work clothes thrown all over and he had taken a nap and not remade the bed. I called the house and told him it was an emergency and he needed to come home. He was not happy with me, but he always cleans his mess before going anywhere.
