Thanks! I wasn't good about making them help until recently. It just sort of hit me one day that it might be harder at first, but in the long run I would have help. It was definitely well worth the effort. It used to take me 30-60 minutes to pick up the downstairs by myself at the end of a day and I often didn't bother. Now, I assign each kid a room and it takes 10 or 15 minutes total. Many hands make light work. And it's mostly their mess anyway!

Honestly, my house is so much tidier since requiring my children to pitch in.
