But isn’t that a general assumption made by 100% of teenagers and 98% of adult children still living with their parents? (The other 2% believe that they are also entitled to play all day, and totally for free).
It’s also the assumption of a lot of adults who have serial divorces, others who are chronically unemployed, and a bunch that are in local political office for short periods.
Being a kid was great.
So totally my son, I wonder if I was like this when I was younger. I thought I was helpful around the house. Hmmmm? One wonders if one should ask ones mom this? Nah, Why dredge up memories I have forgotten.
My youngest son would say yes out loud. He has adhd and acts without thinking of the consequences.
I was forced into labor at a young age (helping around the house). But this is so totally my grandson – kids today!
Too late Toby.
I agree – they want to help while they’re little, and follow you round with a duster buffing away – problem is, as soon as they’re able to actually do something instead of just ‘helping’, they lose interest somehow.Little kids = sheer joyBig kids = sheer purgatory
If you treat your kids with respect, they will respect you. It is as easy as that.Tell them they’re no good, they do as you expect them to: Behave like they’re no good.Blame yourself, folks!
Survival skills waking up at last.
Toby has impressed me. He did not use his “inside voice”.
