How can I keep my house clean with children?

Be kind, Yet Assertive

Yelling at the kids to help clean usually doesn't motivate them. They will soon learn to tune you out and often develop low self-esteem. Children respond better to kindness. However, be assertive when needed. Let them know that they need to do their part to help clean the house to benefit the whole family.
