I was laid off last November, and went back to school, gained my CNA, and am now working 2nd shift in a retirement / nursing facility. (In the factory, I worked 6am til 2pm first shift) Now I hardley even see my kids, except when they are leaving for school in the mornings. (they're all teenagers and 1 pre-teen) I'm not home in the evenings, so I can't monitor things that take place. I know my husband isn't cooking dinner for them like he should. I know they're not going to bed at a decent hour. And he's figured out that he can say "yes" to whatever, and it's just much easier. My house is a mess. I'm embarresed of it! While I still have Sat and Sun off, I don't feel like I should have to spend it picking up behind everybody else. Dishes piled in the sink, laundry every where... It all happens b/c I'm not here; or at least that's how I feel. I have to pick up overtime, when / where I can, b/c I'm not making the money I made b4Answer Question

Your family is old enough to know to pitch-in and help. Have you done it all for all these years? Oops. Shoulda started long time ago.
My 2 year old had to put his clothes in the laundry room and clean up the house. He learned to cook and at 14, he's a great asset in the house! Peace and Love
