Hello, I am new here.
The teens we have wil not do anything until they are told over and over! My BS is 14 and my SD is 16. we made them lists of chores to do daily, that didnt work! it seems like all we do is say, pick that up, put that away etc. etc. My wife and I are @ the end of our ropes. we just get tired of having to remind them daily of every single little thing. My SD is worse, because she will whine like a 3 year old over the littliest things! They both get home from school before my wife and I get home from work. The first thing they do is, one of them to the TV and the other to the computer or phone. they would set there all night if we would let them! I dont remember myself being like this or my brothers when we where teens. why wont they take pride in maybe surprising us by doing laundry, dishes or anything before we get home from work? we want them to learn responsibility, but it seems impossible?
thanks for reading, and for any advice!
