Anyone else have a child that is just super defiant and lazy.
My oldest dd turned 10 on Monday. Her BFF turned 11 on Sunday. They have always gotten together to do something for their birthdays (ever since they were toddlers).
So her friend's mom called me last night and agreed to pick her up at noon today for a sleepover. Her friend moved away a couple years ago so they don't see each other much.
You would think that would be a major motivator for her to get her chores done. But nope.
I told her she had to straighten up her room, put her laundry away and help with the messes in the rest of the house. She'd rather pout in her room. She has 3 hours to get it done and she absolutely refuses to lift a finger. She would rather call her friend and say she's not coming than clean anything.
Anyone else have to deal with this day in and day out? I'm left being the "mean mom" because I won't let her go 'til her chores are done.
