EVERYDAY I tell my 8,9,11yr to pick up their dirty clothes off the bathroom floor and EVERYDAY they forget.what is appropriate for punishments and how can I get them to do it?I know they just forget but I am so tired of having to put their stinky clothes in the hamper!
This works for me occasionally: I wait until they are entrenched in a video game then stand in front of the game and remind them to get their dirty clothes off the bathroom floor NOW. Then don't move or let them play their game for even one more second until they've done what you asked. Eventually if you are consistent with this they will remember to put their dirty clothes where they belong and not leave them on the floor.
