hi i have just joined and i thought that this might help. my kids were arguing over who was doing what and when, i got fed up with all the arguing so i drew up a rota for washing up, putting away etc and included mine and my husbands name as well then stuck it on the notice board for every one to see and i have had no more arguing since. hope this helps and good luck
