Earning their keep
I gave the three eldest children each a washcloth doused in floor cleaner.
I assigned them each a section of the dining room floor, all to themselves, for which they were totally responsible.
And then I said the magic words:
"Let's see who can do the best job getting their section clean!"
I've learned the secret with these siblings. Make it a contest, and no one stops until they've won.
My floors have never been so shiny.
This was a tight race, and in the end, it was impossible to tell who had achieved the highest level of cleanliness for their area.
I promised them a rematch. They promised to remind me.
This is a winning formula for sure.
