Sunday Saying

"You can't make your kids do anything. All you can do is make them wish they had. And then, they will make you wish you hadn't made them wish they had."
— Marshall B. Rosenberg

Most days this feels so true. Trying to get my kids to clean up their toys is like, well, um, trying to get kids to clean up anything. Practically impossible without a lot of whining, yelling, and bribery. Most days I am not sure if I want to just do everything myself, or try to teach them to be responsible. Somebody please tell me that it gets easier as they get older?! Or if you have any tips on getting them to cooperate when I want them to clean.
