Do you do your stepkids' laundry?

Posted by   + Show Post
I was going to just ask the moms who have 50/50 but on 2nd thought, I'd love to hear from everyone.

I just started doing it because I hate that my bf waits until the kids have no clothes left. So I started taking on his, and his 2 youngest. His oldest is 8 and I think she got embarrassed that I was doing her laundry, so she said she wanted to learn to do her own. My only dd is 13 and does her own.

We share laundry responsibility in our house. Skid puts his away, I put away almost everything else but have our two year old help put his own laundry away.

CSM, so yes, except 14 yr old sd does her own. Otherwise it wouldn't get done. With the younger 3, I wash/dry, and they fold be put away.

I used to do it for DH and SD9. I'd wash/dry and fold them and all they'd have to do is put it away. After a few whiny fits about putting her laundry away, SD earned the privilege of doing her own laundry. I'll still help her out (switching them over and help with folding). She's funny because she waits until she has no clothes left.

okay we get ss every weekend

sd comes whenever she wants to

I do all the laundry. Wash/dry/fold/fluff/sort/hangup/put away.

SS6 does know how to use the machine-but prefers not to until he's tall enough to reach the knobs himself.

SD11 does know how to use the machine-and sometimes she'll do her own laundry-but it's not often.(usually when she has an accident, she does her own wash)

DH is clueless when it comes to laundry-he'll use febreeze or cologne to "clean" his clothes. (I shit you not)

I was everyone's laundry and dry it. The kids each fold and take care of their own.

we have sole custody of the kids.
