I have had it. I am at my wits end with my kids not listening. I have been telling them for the last 3 hours to get their room clean. All they do is play. I have been watching them clean it and I am just tired of it. Ok so it hasn't quite been 3 hours yet. It is 3:13 and at 4:00 it will be 3 hours and at 4 if they are not done my husband and I are throwing all their toys away. No they are not going in a shed, garage, or storage. They are seriously going to the trash and the kids are going to walk with us to the dump and watch us throw their toys away. Call me a bitch I don't care but I am so tired of it. We will not be buying them any more toys until they can prove to us they can take care of them. I am just tired of stepping on them, picking them up, watching the dogs chew on them, and the kids just not caring if they get broken or not. They leave them outside, they leave them every where in the house. When you tell them to pick them up they cry and say its to much work. I am just tired of yelling at them. I have made reward boxes, charts, and all different types of reward systems and they kids just don't care. I have tried making it to wear they work for money, toys, time with parents, time to play outside, going to the park....ect....and they just don't care. I have had it. I am at my wits end. Their books are all torn up, and wrote in. So yes their books and everything are going in the trash. I do have a few books of theirs that won't be going in the trash because they are the books my oldest practices with. Other than that everything from their crayons to their stuffed animals is going in the trash.
So with no toys in my house or books or stuffed animals I need some ideas on how my kids can prove to me that they can take care of their toys so they can earn toys back. I have chores for them to do but they only do the ones that they think is fun. for example....the fun ones are...Moping, dusting, sweeping, and my oldest likes to clean the br. They don't mind making their beds. The chores they won't do are all the other ones, Dishes, laundry, cleaning their room, helping with yard work that kind of thing. So any ideas would be great.
