So remember that cleaning checklist I started for the kids? So they can help while DH is deployed? Yeah, we'll my 3 year old DD decided she didn't like it anymore. So I to,d her she doesn't get dessert then. She said fine, and watched all of eat our whole fruit ice cream smoothie, and didn't even pitch a fit. So the next night I told her to help with the cleaning checklist, or go to bed. The little asshole went to bed! EARLY! So tonight I said no story at bedtime unless she helps. She said nope, and went upstairs to go to bed. EARLY! WITH NO STORY! She loves her bedtime stories. Wtf????? What am I supposed to do to get her to help clean up? Beat her?

God help me when she is a teenager. Otherwise she is a really good kid. My easiest by far! My other two are/were the handfuls. But man, what a stubborn little asshole she can be.

Lol...I know what u mean. But I only have one child "right now" and I'm dreading when he becomes a teen! Lol at least I got a boy first I've heard girls can be quite the handful as teens ! :) I got realllllly lucky with my son, even as an infant he was an amazing baby and he's still really well behaved for a 3 year old lol I thank god everyday that he blessed me with such a well behaved child lol ;) GL

What about saying something like "everybody who helps gets to get a new box of crayons at the end of the week", something along those lines?

Nope. Bribes don't work. She even stayed home when I took ODS to get an ice cream cone from McDonald's. She gave not a fuck.

when my kids refused to clean up i would carry them to the stuff that needed to be picked up, take their hands in mine and use their hands to pick the stuff up, carry them and the stuff to wherever it needed to go, open their hands back up to drop it in, repeat. after a few of these trips back and forth we're all laughing and the kid ends up agreeing to continue. maybe that would work..

I recently threatened to throw away DSs toys if he didn't help. He had just TRASHED his playroom, so I started picking things up and saying 'everything in this bag is going out'. He freaked out and helped. I felt so mean though. 


On the upside, if she's in bed early, that's an hour less where she can make a mess. Haha
