How do you deal with your teens and basic chores? SD knows her room is her responsibility but tonight DH and SD got into it because DH told SD to clean up after dinner. She told him NO, and asked why he didn't do it. He said he had to study and had school work to do. Then she asked why I couldn't do it. DH responded that I was the one who fixed dinner and so she could clean up. She said her role was to eat dinner, not clean up. DH was getting annoyed quick. She continued to argue with him about it for a few more minutes. She is NEVER asked to vacuum and hasn't been asked to clean up the kitchen in MONTHS. There wasn't even a lot to do, put the lids on the left over bowls, put the condiments away, rinse dishes and put them in the dishwasher and then wipe down the kitchen countertops. When she finally did it, it took her a whole 5 minutes.
