I'm a terrible mom and I abuse him. That is what my 12 year old said after I made him take the trash out to the curb. The handle broke on the trash can and he had to touch the trash bag inside. He also said he is telling my mom ( grandma) on me. He came in and said I'm watching my hand 10 times. He is now pouting in his room. Guess who isn't happy with me for making them start doing chores?

Terrible, terrible mommy :)

Lol good for you for making them do it. Once they get older and have kids they will understand.

Lmao. Poor thing. 

You should show him pictures of the children who have been purposefully beaten to death or starved to death and tell him how sorry you are you are such a terrible mother. tsk tsk

LOL!

Have you read the thing that says "TEENAGERS! Move out. Get a job. Clean your house. Care for a family. While you still know everything!" I get a kick out of that.

We never had set chores growing up. My parents just asked for our help witH specific things when they needed it. We are all great housekeepers. Don't worry about him not having set chores before 12.

If that's abuse then omg my kids should have been taken away a long time ago they are 7&5 and have at least 35 min of chores a day lol. Even my 5 year old does his without a fight. Cause this momma don't play lol.

Just keep sticking to your guns one day he will stop fighting and just do it lol. I believe it is important to teach them to take pride in their home and help keep it clean.
