Re: How do I do this?

Oh maybe I should add that I have kids ranging from 12 years old to 22 months old.

It's totally a power struggle here to do that. Many times I do that and I guess you could say I win on one way...but at the same time, so does he. He plays for a good hour or more then still doesn't pick up. I'm pretty sure he could do that all day...or at least a good few hours.

I just struggle so much with the NO and the I CAN'T (meaning he doesn't want to) that it just drives me crazy. I know it's all part of them growing up and it happens to everyone but seriously, it has to stop or at least lessen quickly! I feel I'm setting him and our family up for failure and he will be 'that' kid.
