My kids dont have chores per say but everyone once in a while I will ask the older one yo vacuum the living room or unload the dishwasher or dry the dishes I hand wash and put them away. Well when I ask him to do these things its always half ass...he will vacuum but 'miss' the rug that covers most of the room...he will skip drying dishes and attempt to put them away wet...when unloading dishwasher he throws the stuff in the cupboards instead of where it goes so when I need it to cook I can't find it...it gets frustrating that I just throw mu hands up and end up doing it myself because its quicker no argument and I know it will get done right. What do you think is this just letting him win cuz then he doesn't have to do the work or should this be worth the aggravation of making him do it over and over until he gets it right? What do you do with your kids?
