I have 2 stepchildren that spend every other weekend, holidays, and 2 or more weeks in the summer here. My children, who are 6, 4, and 2 all have chores they have to do on a daily basis. Usually the children rotate by weeks on the chores. When my husbands children come over I think it's only fair to give them chores as well. They are teens and of course think it's not fair that they have to come over and do "work," saying they don't have to do it at home. It becomes a fight all weekend amongst everyone. I don't think it's fair for one person(me) to do everything for 7 people all the time, which is why we have chores. What can I do to keep the peace and still enforce the rules???
