Let's get real here. A clean, tidy home usually isn't at the top of - okay, really even on - a kid's list of priorities.
Sure, our moms may have dusted and vacuumed every day (and without help from us). But we don't have to! It's a brave new world out there, and today's Mom knows the score: The only way to hit a cleaning home run is to draft a clean team from a family of volunteers.
Better still, involving the family in housekeeping will cut down on the amount of time we spend cleaning and increase the time we spend with our families. What could be better?!
