  • My home is always spotless. I take pride in being a home maker. I do not ask my BF to do anything. he does, but not because I ask him to or nag him to. I make my DD help clean up after herself. I don't give an allowance. I Love having a clean tidy comfortable home for my family

  • I consider my place clean right now..but by tomorrow it'll be cleaning time again!
    He helps..but I do wish he would help more..
    I do make my lil one clean up after her messes..I say that's your mess so you clean it
    and she loves to do it! she's 2.5 so that probably won't last too long

  • My house always has a limit as to how clean it can be. I'm not one to go overboard with the cleaning. One good scrub down every couple of weeks and an everyday general cleanup is good enough for me.

    My kids are too young to help out. Once they become of age to start helping out (3 and older) then they will have their chores. They'll only get allowence if all of their chores are done. No free rides here.

    And DH helps out enough. I could use more help, but what he does is good for now.

  • Do you feel like your house can never be clean enough? Yes, all the time. No matter how clean it is.
    Do you feel like your spouse should help out more? Sometimes. Like this past month when he was off work. But when he is working I don't ask him to help me with the house work. I mean I don't help him with his work at work.
    Do you make your child clean up after himself? Yes. My kids pick up their toys, dirty clothes. And my oldest puts their plates in the sink after meals.
    Do you give a chore list and reward them later? No.
