How do you know when you are expecting to much from yourself or the kids?

I work, they go to school.

We come home:
They have loads of homework, I have loads of house work.
They have lots of studies, and I have lots of helping to do.
Who showered, who has a test, who needs to read...

  • Sounds like households all across America. It's all part of being a parent. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world :)

  • I don't really understand the question. Being a parent is a full time job. I know. I have a lot of trouble w/the homework thing. I just let the house go to you know where when there is other stuff to do like homework and showers.

  • You would know when arguments overtake your life. We all need to pick our battles and leave the insignificant aside.
