  • You answered your own question, they don't do it because you to be consistent and make them responsible for their own jobs. It's not easy, but is very necessary to get them doing it on their own and good for you in doing that.

  • Meant to say also it would be nice if you had some kind of a reward in place for when they do take care of themselves. It won't hurt to let them know how pleased you are that they did what they are suppose to do. Good luck hon.

  • I found a Chore Chart that you can print out. 

    I never done the chart I just try to be organize in the mornings. Having everything in there backpack the night before and at the door.  Have there clothes picked out the night before as well. Wearing velcro shoes help a lot as well. Having that routine down pack every morning helps a lot.
