Instilling a sense of responsibility in your kids is one of the main responsibilities for parents. And it can be a hard-won battle.

"Making your kids do chores is another chore for you," says mom and Canadian parenting blogger Meg Wismer. "It's painful, it takes a long time, you're constantly on them …"

She and her sister, fellow blogger and mom of three Leigh Combrink, know that, however hair-pullingly frustrating, chores are necessary for their broods.

The two have theories on how birth order affects a kid's willingness to do chores, and have a hilarious trick for not losing it when reminding their kids of chores — it involves singing.

If getting your kids to do their chores is a necessary evil for you, watch this latest episode of Apparently, you'll definitely relate.

'Apparently' is AOL's new Originals series that shows the hilarity (and chaos) that comes with having kids. Canadian sisters, bloggers and moms Meg and Leigh are literally giving us an all-access pass into their lives. From the shitstorm that is the morning routine to the desperate attempts to find 'me time,' these oh-so-relatable women give us an honest look at what it means to be a parent (Now, where's the coffee?).

To find out how these parenting warriors survive meal time mayhem, watch the video above.
