I give my children instructions to clear their rooms up but they ignore me and continue playing. When I tell them off and threaten to ground them for one week and stop their pocket money they eventually carry out their household tasks. However, when I check on the work it is not done well. The children just laugh and tell me to 'lighten up and chill out' when I ask them why they do not complete their tasks satisfactorily.
