My seven year old grumbles occasionally, but when asked to help out or clean up, he usually does it. My four year old is not so helpful. To get her to do anything that she didn't volunteer to help with usually requires standing over her the entire time. It has always been thus, but I was still a bit surprised when I told her to pick up her dirty clothes and put her shoes away and she snapped back, "Why are you treating me like a servant?"
Clearly there is no need for us to encourage the child in the belief that "every girl is a princess." She seems to already think she was "to the manner born." I think a little more manual labor may be necessary in her future.
