How to Make it Fun and Get Your Kids to Help
Saturday cleaning can be grueling on many levels. You may hate it because you've already worked all week. Your kids hate it because . . . Well, they just hate it. They don't enjoy chores, it's Saturday, and they'll do anything to get around it. Maybe you don't clean on Saturday, but if not, you likely try and sandwich it in yourself during the week. I know mom's who get up an extra hour early to clean before going to work, or they spend their late hours before bed cleaning, or drudge through it on Sunday which becomes another workday for them.
If your kids are old enough to participate in cleaning, then get them to join in. They need to learn the skills, and they should help. Don't be a slave mom (or slave dad)!
