One of my best friends lives right across the street from me. So we're pretty much at each other's houses everyday. She has two sons (11 and 8) and one daughter (9). Her two sons share a room together. I couldn't help but notice, everytime they're asked to clean their room, her 8 year old just sits on the bed, while his older brother does all the work! She told me this has been going on for a year or so. We've tried things like telling him he can't play until he cleans his mess, but he doesn't seem to care.
So, my question to you mothers. Do you have any idea how we can solve this problem? Any suggestions at all?
