just give up trying for the sake of no more arguing?
my kids gripe about chores and claim to not know what to do when its basically the same stuff they always do.
"Work before Play" and they know that but they don't want to and always give us major attitude about it. I'm tired of the fighting and am about a stone's throw from giving up and not making them do chores anymore, but I have told them not to ask for any new toys or games from me. Told them "If you want new things and rewards, you have to earn it". I left it at that and of course they got mad and told their Dad I was just trying to make em feel guilty, which I wasn't, just stating a fact. No work, no new things. Dad and Me and have to work to get new stuff, so do you and so you will as an adult, as well, this isn't a resort. My boys are both in Jr Hi, and have Special Needs but that is being taught to not be an excuse.

don't give up keep at it... cause if they see you just give up all the time then they will expect that all the time... let them know if they don't finish there choirs then no tv, games, phone, or play.... that you have to earn them now... oh they will start doing them trust me... my dad did it to me and sure enough it will become a habbit couse they will soon see that mom isn't going to caterer to them no more.
