Hi, I am an army wife and I really like to keep a clean house. But it gets tough sometimes when I have no help from the kids. My son is 6 and trys to through a fit when I ask him to help. My daughter is 3 and refuses to clean her own room. Well when I say refuses I mean she actually plays more than cleans. I dont feel that I ask too much of them. They have to keep their bedrooms clean and keep all their dirty clothes out of the bathroom and bathtub toys picked up. All dirty clothes from bedroom and bathroom must go to the laundry room and all toys have to be put away when not in use. Of course they have to collect their own belongings out of the living room and put away. And for the last thing they have to take their dishes to the kitchen sink when done eating. As a child I had much more to do than most children now days but i would never have thought to through a fit about it. If anyone can hepl I would greatly appriciate it.
