Parents of multiple children will understand the concept of sibling rivalry when it comes to chores. Perhaps your kids are arguing over their younger sister being able to do less of a chore while they are stuck shovelling the pet mess on the front yard. Other times your younger kids are upset that they can’t do the big kid chores and so on and so forth. Sibling rivalry is a given when it comes to raising more than one child and yes, it often occurs over chores. Kids don’t think they are all that fun (How is that possible?), they feel you’re definitely not being fair, and want to do precisely that “easy and super-fun” chore that you so unfairly assigned to their sibling – again!
As parents it’s our job to teach our kids about financial responsibility. This means that you shouldn’t feel guilty for not buying junior that much desired video game or little Lilly that doll she’s been begging for.

At our home we usually like to say: “messy house, happy kids” but sadly a little mess can easily turn into a gigantic issue.
Even though the kids’ room is made for playing or/and studying it should be organized in order for them to better focus or simply enjoy their free time. So every year we do a really thorough cleaning of the kids room, to complement the weekly cleaning. And we try to do it efficiently and fast. And we usually start a bit before the Spring cleaning season, to get the clutter out of the way as soon as possible. With new toys coming in during the holidays, the kids room can have more that they can handle in January.
