Hi everyone. I have not been to ivillage in a while, but I am at my wits end! I only have 4 kids, but am posting here because with more there must be more mess! My kids ages are 14, 13, 11, and 8. I am having trouble with them cleaning up after themselves! I am truly beginning to think that I have raised little pigs! I need some tips on how to get them to pick up after themselves and clean their own rooms! Especially with school getting out in 2 days and they'll be home all the time!
Also, when they have friends over, the friends treat our home very disrespectfully. I don't know how to handle other people's children. I want our house to be inviting, but I don't want to spend all summer cleaning up after other people's children too!
Any help would be great before I lose my mind! ; )
