Val make a list for each one of them on what their daily, and weekly chores are. If they don’t get them done, there are consequences, “no TV”; no Books, mags etc; until the chores are all done on the list. Period….end of discussion. My mom and dad both did this. I had no problem. My sister on the other hand did, as she was a slob and expected someone else to do it all. Well she found out the hard way……she was told to go to her room and clean it thoroughly and my mom would be in to check it. If not done to her standards, she told her what still needed to be done. If it wasn’t done, the consequences were NO TV, no going out and the list went on and on. Of course I got dirty looks and I’d just smile since I was a neat nick like my mom and dad. She was the only slob in the family.
