Don't get rid of the clover. It's a legume, and is normally there as part of a grass stand, keeping your soil fertile. You'll learn to love it.
If you still want to get rid of it for a specific reason (maybe your child is badly allergic to bee stings), then harvest it and feed it to the chickens or other animals. Or compost it with lots of shredded paper.
If your animals don't like the taste, there is too much for them to eat, or you don't have animals to feed it to, consider removing your lawn. Lawns can be a waste of water. Instead, start an ornamental vegetable garden or edible landscape. Rosalind Creasy has a fine book on the subject, and there are numerous websites.
