I am a newly single dad of 4. My kids are 9, 8,5 and 2. My 8 year old is autistic and non verbal. I wish my kids would clean. But since their mom died its been tough to be the heavy and make them do chores. Ive tried to make it fun, I've tried to make it reward driven, I tried to make it to have them lose it all (TV tablets, anything fun) Nothing works. So in order for my house to be cleanish, I do it myself

They know they have to help. I don't need to assign.

Kids are a little older 13,10... their primary chores are really just tend to theirs... room clean, clothes put away, rinse off dishes (dishwasher) and need to be reminded once in a while but consider myself lucky and blessed with 3 amazing daughters!
