Often, one person in the house gets stuck with doing all the "house" work. See what happened when this mom got fed up and went on strike .

Have you ever thought about doing this?

Would your teens notice?

Are they responsive when you ask for help? How do you get them to chip in and help out?

As for normal chores if they maintain good habits without being reminded for X number of days they'll receive some small reward.
