What should I do about this??

She has two kids. She works full time. No dad in picture right now. Kids are well taken care of, but she does not discipline them. She does not keep a clean house, at all. She is perfectly content to never clean her house. I can't stand it. Question is, as a relative, what should I do?

  • Nothing, if her children are happy and well taken care of then as long as their isn't rotting food, or bugs all over the house then who cares. You don't have to live there. If you MUST do something, why not offer to help her, she probably feels guilty for working as much as she does, so when she does get home she probably just wants to spend her time with her kids, and really who can blame her?

  • Maybe it doesnt bother her, but if it is a health issue, someone needs to talk to her. fort example, if there are choking hazards on the floor around a crawler, or feces, broken glass, moldy food, this is seriously a health hazard and enough for CPS to intervene with parenting classes or cleaning help.

  • If it is not a CPS issue or a health hazzard, then you SAY nothing... what you could DO for a single mom is offer to take her out for a spa day (child care costs on you) or watch the kids for free so she can get some probably much needed me time.

    Honestly if her house was ALWAYS a wreck, then it is probably just the way she is... but if it is a new thing then she might be depressed. Reach out to her in a positive way.

  • Do what ever you can to help. If your help is not welcome, then leave them alone.

  • Either help out or keep out. She sounds like she has a lot on her plate. The last thing she needs is critisism. If it bothers you so much, meet her outside her home. Have her over or meet on neutral ground.

  • Offer to help her clean it. But it really is none of your business.
