    The thing to do if you want help, is to tolerate towels being folded differently.

    NOT, I taught a 4 year old how to fold towels and wash clothes. He wanted to help so I showed him how to do it and it took him about 3 towels to get it. These children are just lazy and inconsiderate of their grandmother………….and yes I do realize it is a comic

    Me, I don’t think that there is any wrong way to do it, everyone has their own preferred way.

    Sometimes, where you store them dictates how you fold them.

    True, being obsessed with trivia is a great way to ruin people’s life.

    If you want a job done right, do it yourself.

    I solved this kind of problem with my girls in this manner…I would show them how I wanted it done and worked with them to make sure they knew how. Afterwards if it wasn’t done correctly I would have them redo it and tell them next time they will fold or wash or clean the entire closet, cabinet, floors, whatever job it was that they did not do correctly. Only took once for me to follow through with my threat.

    I would gladly have switched helping around the house for working on a farm and other odd jobs like painting and yard work for people in our neighborhood in order to earn enough money to pay for food in restaurants and clothing as a kid. But my mother couldn’t even tolerate my brother and I around the house. She preferred girls – even in her personal relationships.

    Thanks David, my sentiments exactly.
    My issue wasn’t with my kids, but my husband. (the kids folded towels my way)
    My husband and I both do laundry but we fold towels differently.
    If I had complained, early on, about the way he folded towels, his responses would have been ‘OK, you wash and fold them all."
    If I want his help, I accept that he does some stuff differently.
    The same worked with our kids, too.
    Some things are important, but other things just aren’t.
    It’s about picking your battles.
