I honestly have no idea what else to do. If I could get Super Nanny or whatever that ladys name is over here I would be calling her in a heartbeat. I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old. All they do is whine and fight with each other. They don't clean, they don't help when I ask them to, they don't feed their pets, they don't do anything. Their reasoning is "daddy doesn't do anything" (and he doesn't do a damn thing, I seriously wish you guys could see the mess he's left...it makes me cry, but he's an entirely different post).
I've taken toys away, I've unplugged the t.v., I've sent them to their rooms, I've put them in corners, I've spanked, I've yelled, I've cried, I've screamed. I don't know what else to do. I told them they have 3 days to get their bedroom and playrooms cleaned (since we're having a party Saturday night and are considering having the guests bring their kids as well), or else every single bit of their stuff goes in the garbage. I have cleaned their rooms, I have organized, bought containers, labels, and showed them where everything goes. They destroy the rooms, clothes everywhere, beds unmade, toys all over the floor in the playroom where they can't even walk. They start bringing the shit in here in the living room, which I don't mind if a toy or two come in here but they DONT PICK IT UP. They just leave it.
I've offered allowance, treats, rewards, as well. Not a damn thing works. DD may help with laundry sometimes but they youngest sits down and screams whenever I ask them to clean up...if I hear "IM TOO TIRED" and "I CANT DO THAT MUCH CLEANING" one more time I don't know what I'm going to do.
Please help, I'm in tears right now.
