    Unhappy Delegating Chores

    I have two kids who make absolute messes and will only clean it up after I'm upset and have asked them for the fifth time to do so. I know this is a common issue trying to get your kids to help out around the house, but I can't seem to get any cooperation whatsoever until I become the villain. How have people made their kids listen without having to throw a fit?

    A good use of cause and effect I think would be helpful. If they don't clean up their messes then you can limit friend hangouts, wifi use, or whatever things they like to do in their free time. Hopefully it won't be something you have to enforce forever but maybe it can help push them in the right direction, sometimes you have to put your foot down and be the "mean" or "uncool" parent.
