    You need to enroll all family members who can walk, talk and carry things to help.Teach them to do do dishes mop the floors, make their beds and sort laundry.

    Buy part synthetic clothing and linens that don't need ironing. Prepare casserole that can be frozen for some meals during the week. Clean the floors frequently as most people watch where there feet are going.

    Create boxes and bins for each person's stuff. If it doesn't go in the bin it goes to the closet and only mom can give it back on Saturday. Relax, the house won't fall down if it isn't spotless 24 hours a day. You can't do it all

    Great advice, Karen! If you don't teach your kids to pitch in, they will grow up expecting others to wait on them.

    I've worked day cares to get me through college....even a 2 yr old can pick up their toys and put them away. i had to teach my college roommate how to do laundry. A cousin didn't know how to wash dishes by hand. there are courses in 'life skills". it's the parents job to equip their children with the basic homemaking skills, simple cooking. thankfully, i had a "mean" mom. she made both my brother and i do basic household and yard/ garden chores- its a family working as a team.
    most employers want team players- start them off right.
