Keeping our house neat

Maria - posted on 04/16/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have three kids ages 6, 9 and 14. The older they get, the less they help. It seems to bd getting harder to keep our house clean. Every free minute I have, I spend picking up, cleaning, putting things away. What can I do to get my kids and husband to help consistently? I'm not talking about a "perfect home" but just basic chores such as dishes, trash, dirty clothes, food in their rooms...
I have tried allowance, privileges, charts but no luck :0(
I look forward to hearing from y'all!

take away privileges until jobs are done. It takes a month of doing things daily for it to become habit. If this bugs you then ground them all for a month. If they do their chores daily for the month then they get privileges back, if they stop doing chores then do it again.
