Do your kids clean up after themselves without prompting?
This is probably my biggest annoyance. They are fine with cleaning up after themselves but almost always need reminders. Any suggestions for how to get them to take the initiative?
Let them know that anything found lying around without someone using it for a set amount of time becomes property of Mom. Or if they leave dishes or something like that out then Mom gets to pick one thing of theirs to keep. Don't say anything just take it. They will get the hint very quickly.
It really depends on the day. they hate if their laundry is sitting in the basket in their room for more than a day, so if I don't get to it, they put it away and bring the empty basket downstairs.
