My FI’s kids never flush the toilet. They are always in such a hurry to get back outside to play they just go then take off.  I guess I should add washing their hands because if they don’t flush they certainly aren’t taking time to wash their hands.  This forgetfulness has made for some scary/shocked/grossed out moments when I go to the bathroom. Oddly they do remember to put the toilet seat down.  

I think maybe you had something in mind more along the lines of the they wont eat carrots but not flushing is all I got. :::BIG SIGH::

The toilet issue is exactly the same at my place except my kids hate dirty hands so they a always wash them thank goodness. They always say sorry I must have forgot.  When it’s something smelly I’m not really impressed.

@MangoLover4Life:  Other things I find hard to get my boys to do is put dishes into dishwasher, hang up wet towels and put dirty washing into washing basket. They are getting better at these tasks but I hate having to nag, but in the long run I’m sure it will be worth it:)

Hand washing. She hates washing her hands. The water is always too hot or too cold or she doesn’t like the soap, etc. Thankfully, she loves hand sanitizer and asks for it constantly. Whatever works, you know?

She used to fight bedtime every night. Argued about going to bed, argued about staying in bed… so frustrating. We’d put her in the bed at 8 and at 10 she’d still be complaining and trying to climb out. This past Christmas she got a My Little Pony tent and I had the idea to set it up on her bed. She LOVES it and now I hardly ever get arguments about bedtime. Thank you, Twilight Sparkle πŸ™‚
