My husband has been on unemployment for a while now and refuses to let me get a job. (I don't want to be away from my kids, having been a stay at home mom for years, but want what is best for my family.) The no job thing isn't the issue so much as him just not doing ANYTHING. He stays up all night playing video games and sleeps until at least 3 PM everyday. He will not help with anything. I am at my wits end from the lack of help. If I wake him up he is in a sh*tty mood all day and I just can't deal. If he were working I would expect nothing, but since he is home he should be helping out IMO. He also suffers from depression and will not get help, hence why I am scared to say anything to him. I understand that it is probably the depression making him sleep all the time, but if he won't get help... I am just so lost as to what to do in this situation. Help please!Answer Question

if they would help clean i would cook hot meals they got salads and cereal until the chores were done. i told them i wasn't going to do all that work if they weren't willing to do any work.
That is awesome! I am afraid that would backfire here since he would just run out for fast food, but I love it! I have thought of making diapers to sell, since I make my own anyways, but I just don't know i I would have the time. I barely have time to shower on a good day. Gross, I know, but it is the truth. Thank you for the response though!
