- I remember when they were young, thinking that I was going to have them doing things when they were five and six. Well, somehow those years slid by and I never followed through.
- I think many times in the back of my mind I justify letting them get away with not doing chores because 1) “I’m a stay-at-home mom without young ones and I have the time”; or 2) they’ve got too much homework; or 3) it’s just easier to do it myself.
- However I know I’m doing them a disservice when I don’t teach them how to care for themselves. They need to know that what moms / dads do for the home isn’t so easy!
