it was a bit more difficult getting the kids to do chores. They wanted to gravitate toward the tv/video games/outisde, but I had to keep them on track. It wasn’t too fun, either, because when they don’t want to do something, they are absolutely uncooperative, and it’s annoying as heck. They got the table cleared off, though, and dinner dishes cleared from the table. 5 years ago
Right now, Mom (that would be me) does basically everything around the house. I made a chore list for my kids yesterday. Well, 2 actually. One for chores they will do DAILY (put their laundry away, clear the dinner table, feed and water dog, etc) and one for what they need to do WEEKLY (clean their bathroom, take out the bathroom trash, dust the living room, etc). See, my husband grew up with his mom doing everything. Not me. My dad and stepmom had us do everything together. We all pitched in. Everyone helped fold towels. Everyone helped with the Saturday chores. Everyone pitched in. And that’s how I want it in my house. But I’ve allowed my kids to barely do anything for too long, while I cleaned up after them. Truth be told, it’s kind of making me a resentful person. So, I guess you could say that not only am I trying to make them responsible people, I’m trying to keep myself from going to the loony bin. 5 years ago
