how do you keep house clean with 5 kids?

I have 5 kids from 9yrs to 2 months and cant seem to keep house clean , any ideas please!!!!

I’ve taught my kids from the very beginning to pick up after themselves. They know they have to keep their rooms clean and their toys stay in their rooms.

I have 3 boys ages 6, 7, and 8. I babysit 3 boys, ages 4, 3, and 18 months. And I babysit 2 girls, ages 3 and 1 year.

Even the younger kids pick-up after themselves.

Tell them they can’t watch tv until their toys are picked up. Often I make it a game. Tell them to see who can pick up the most pieces. Even during clean-up time they need to feel as if they are still playing. Then it’s not too bad.

Make a chore list and let them help out
At the end of each week, give them a reward (monetary or otherwise) for helping out

big basket each room- kids pick up items and put in basket. Older kids put items away or into piles for each to put his own away. Good luck. They grow up too fast, so dont fret too much!

about giving each child a chore that he or she is responsible for each day? that will take a big load off you and teach them responsiblities.

cleaning house while your children are still growing is like shoveling the walk while its still snowing. pointless….

I have sypathy for you but no answer, try a reward system.
Other than that and thinking of my kids ,hahahahahahaha, no

stop having kids
