Mine do. Bigtime. Enter House Fairy at http://www.housefairy.org/ aka my SAVIOR. I don’t quite get why it works so instantly, but I was at wits end with getting them to keep it neat and they were instantaneously excited to clean! That is a feat by itself! She is amazing.
She doesn’t require you magically poof your children away, or their messes (if only!). You simply print up her cute notes, leave some fairy dust aka dollar store glitter, and a treat or present if they’ve done what they’re supposed to do.
If they haven’t done what they’re supposed to do, there’s notes for those times too. We haven’t encountered that yet though!
I went and created a chore list myself on Excel, put it under a plastic page protector so they could use wipe off markers to check off their chores, and it’s AMAZING, they use the chart! Holy moly.. the differences in them! They want the House Fairy to come by and surprise them! They don’t argue, I don’t nag, suddenly their rooms are clean and it required little to no effort!
If you need help like I did, check her out! http://www.housefairy.org/
