I have 2 adult children still at home and they are not doing their share of responsibilities around the house. My biggest issue is cleaning up the kitchen after a nice cooked meal. I work part time and come home, make dinner, and I don't want to clean it up or do the dishes. I am sick of cleaning up the kitchen after 22 years!!!! I have tried certain nights for everyone. Putting dirty dishes in their room, etc. My husband is no better. I realize that he works all day, but I think I deserve the respect. Do they think "why should I do it, when mom will" We have had multiple conversations about it. It gets better for a short time, then back to the same. I like a clean kitchen, but I don't want to do all of the work!!! I also don't want to kick my kids out. They are lots of fun and a joy to have around. Any suggestions?

Put all their crap on the porch and change the locks. Disrespect is just that, whether it is from your children or not. Cut the cord.
Both my children are grown and there is no way I would tolerate that nonsense.
