How about the rest of you? Feeling that way too? What do you do to combat your children's magnificent ways of destroying any sense of cleanliness that you may have?
What do you use for chores and getting the kids to actually do them?
This article from Fatherly has some interesting chore apps. Do you use apps, calendars, paper charts, or do your kids have everything dedicated to memory?
Cleaning House: A Mom's Twelve-Month Experiment to Rid Her Home of Youth Entitlement
by Kay Wills Wyma
I just checked this out on Overdrive.
Cleaning House is her account of a year-long campaign to introduce her five kids to basic life skills and the ways meaningful work can increase earned self-confidence and concern for others.
I did a search on "cleaning house" on Overdrive and there are actually quite a few books we own. Unfortunately, I need to not read the books, just actually pull up my big girl pants and get going.
I hope she gives me some life skills to help me teach me kids to get off their butts and help keep my house from exploding. Somehow I think my kids need one of those reality show gurus to help us, but hopefully this will be a start of a new life. :)
