    I wonder how this is going to work out for me?

    I'm soooooooooo fed up with being their bitch......walking through my house picking up after them......you can trail them room to room in the messes that they make.

    That's not what I'm striking against though.

    It's the laundry.

    I've HAD IT. They will rifle through clean laundry, toss it around with the dirty - and I have to keep starting all over again.

    I just went on strike.

    They both know how to use my BRAND NEW WASHER AND DRYER. They are not allowed to without permission, but from this day until I give up again, they are doing their own.

    They will ask permission. They will be home-schooled if they attempt to go to school in dirty clothes (nobody wants to be home-schooled by me, I'm brilliant but I have no patience and they know it) I'll do it though.

    I'm sooooooo fed up.

    The best I ever heard was a mom that gave her kids a bill. Kid walked into his nice clean room and found a mint on his pillow with a bill for services rendered underneath. :j:

    :giggle: Well played - but there's no way that the kid could've paid it, so it was a false threat.

    My game is real.

    My Sister in law is a mom of one daughter, she does so much laundry every week. Comes with the territory. My mom did my laundry and my brother's laundry after working a full time job.

    Do you leave the clean laundry out, like in a basket or something, for them to put away? Or do you put it away?

    I've been a mom since I was 16.......this shit is out of line.

    I can keep it together if they stop fucking my shit up..........but they just traipse through thinking that there's a magical fairy that gets their rooms clean, and their clothes clean, and keeps the house clean, while maintaining THEIR pets.

    They are rude about laundry. I'm about to teach them hard and fast.

    I took the same approach with my daughter, when I realized that I was washing her stuff that was still folded, that she couldn't be bothered putting away so tossed into her laundry basket.

    She started doing her own laundry at 10, with that disrespect.

    The boys are 10 and 11, nearly 11 and 12.

    Enough.

    They will learn.

    I'm done.

    I do not put it away, I fold it and section it. "here's your shirt pile, here's your pajama pile, here's your pants pile, here's your underwear and socks pile"

    It ends up back in the dirty laundry time and time again.

    Wow! Your kids are out of line. I grew up in a spanking household. Mom did the laundry(I wore a lot of vintage and my brother wore a lot of designer athletic stuff), but my brother and I mowed the lawn, bagged the grass and leaves, hauled wood, did dishes, and cleaned our rooms, all after a day at school.

    If we gave her or dad any lip, we got the spatula...
