Once again this morning I find myself taking the over stuffed can't close the lid trash out again
I'm going crazy. I've asked sooo many times please can you take it out if it gets to be like this and still they all leave it for me. I'd leave it but I tried that before and they just stick it on the counter next to it. It's not like I'm asking them to take a final for school. It's taking a bag out of a barrel. Aaaaaahhhh!!!! Sorry about the rant but does anyone else have this problem

Yes! We began making all video game, tv, tablet, etc time earned through chores. If the kiddos don't do what they are asked they lose time. For every chore, they earn time.

I do. I've gotten really angry about it before and blew up about it. Things changed for awhile but then went right back to the way they were. What really sucks is there are 2 grown men living in my house and neither will take it out unless told to with hate! Lol
Granted....they do work a lot. 80 hour weeks lately, so I can't fuss too much lately. Sigh.....

 Yes ma'am. I have boys and this was always a battle for us. Then I got creative with my consequences. If they didn't do their chores without being asked to do them, then they lost all electricity. If it required batteries or a plug and had an off/on switch, they lost it. To include the light switch.
