I have an 8 year old and an almost 5 year old (she'll be 5 in June) and I can't seem to get them motivated to help me with things at home. I have tried offering them money for doing "extra chores" but they don't seem to care. I know that my sister living in my basement (she's 23) doesn't help my situation much because she doesn't think she has to help either. She's never really been forced to clean up after herself and no matter how much fighting we have or what I try to do, she leaves "a trail behind her" that I end up cleaning up because I don't want my house to be a mess. Anyone have any suggestions on getting my girls motivated to help???
