I think I must have been hard on my children when they were young, if they didn't do anything, they didn't get anything.
if the washing wasn't in the bin it didn't get washed, if they didn't clean their rooms, they lived in the mess, their clean clothes were placed on their beds, if they chose to put it on the floor and not in the drawers, they wore it creased up.
if they used all the mugs without washing any, they either had to wash them or use a dirty one. Oh, I was cruel.
two beautiful people now though, and both encourage their own off spring to do jobs in the house.
its the 12 year olds duty to empty the dish washer and put it all away before he goes to school, it just comes naturally to him now, he never questions it.
