having children in the house putting back covers properly is one of the problems i have. specially when they are younger. covers of sugar, cookie jar, toothpaste, pringles.... i can go on all day. now that they are teens... well they do it once in a while but it was more of a problem when they were younger. having problems like this?

my teens have their chores in the house. there is someone who cleans the sala, the kitchen the dining room and the bath room. you can start singing My Chemical Romance's song TEENAGER SCARE THE LIVING SH*T OUT OF ME.... its a good thing they are follow your orders. thanks for the response

that's interesting. I don't think i had problems with this. because in my house and climate if we do not put back the covers then the ants will get in and the whole container of food will be spolit and that would REALLY get us in trouble with our parents. i guess sometimes mothers don't want to nag, but the behaviour of their kids makes it such that they have no choice but to do so.

When they are younger, I usually get things for them to avoid the cover problem and things are put back where they belong. But as they grow older, I insist that they put it back properly. I've sometimes, made my son close it properly again if I notice it's been happening a couple of times in a row. But it doesn't happen anymore (he's 7 now). I don't remember not putting back covers properly when I was younger and I think since I would insist and remind my son everytime he took something, we got into the habit now.
