In the meantime, I plan to remind the kids of the basic rules we drafted and agreed upon:
1. Make your bed.
I have printed a new copy for each of them and set it at their place at the dinner table.
It sounds so simple, yet they so often fail. Rather than nag them, I'm going to give them visual cues in the form of photographs. This morning's failures include:
Failed #1 and #2
I'll be printing out these reminders and placing them next to the Chore Lists. I don't know if this will improve anyone's tidying skills, but at least I'm keeping myself amused in the process.
