Help me to get my kids to clean up after themselves, please :)
Hello all, I am a mom to 3 kids ages 10, 9, and 5. Their rooms are always messy. I will finally have enough and go do it all, making them help, but within a few days the rooms are a mess again! I really don't think at this stage in their lives that I should have to hold their hands and help every step of the way, when I am done writing this I am going to go make space in the back porch/ laundry room for all the toys. I have taken the laundry basket out of their bathroom in an attempt to make them take dirty things directly to the laundry area, now it ends up in piles all over their floors. I really don't know what else to do to get them to want to clean up. We have tried taking things away, sticker reward charts, fun incentives for keeping a clean room. I am at a loss as to what to try next!!!
