What is your biggest achievement in your life? What is that thing which you are always talking proudly about? Is it your job? Is it your fitness? Or is it your travel around the world? How do you really feel if someone told you that you have done a good job raising your kids? That you have a respectful and responsible kids? I think it's the greatest feeling ever, it's rewarding and it would make you forget about all the hard work you have done growing up those kids. You should really be proud then. Raising responsible kids with good manners is not an easy mission, it requires a lot of effort and patience, and you should start working on that right from the cradle. You can start with keeping the kids busy with good things. Instead of watching TV all day and fighting each other and driving you crazy, you can fill their time with useful duties. You can assign your kids certain chores and reward them if they do them correctly. Chores will teach them to be responsible and will also teach them the principles of work and reward. If you want to make your kids' chores organized and interesting you can check the following chore charts and boards.
