DS 10 and DD 7 are both "forgetting" to follow rules and just pick up after themselves. For example, they are supposed to ask us if they can get on the computer and lately we are just finding them getting on without asking. Also, I find socks and shoes on the living room floor, daddy doesn't like that and would rather them put the socks in the dirty clothes and shoes in there rooms. Another thing is picking up there messes after they eat, if we are doing a simple lunch, I will find there plates around the living room or left at the kitchen bar. We have even seen some of there friends over and they pick up after themselves, but our children seem to forget. Daddy has come down on them pretty hard and told them that they cannot play with friends until we see a change in their behavior and responsibilites. I agree with him somewhat..it is the last week of summer break for them, but they also need to step it up alot with things. My DD is also having a major attitude problem and just being bitchy at her brother, me and even daddy. I put her in her room most of the day yesterday becaue of her attitude, and she is better today. But really, what will work for dicipline at these ages?Answer Question
