So for two days I have told my 11 year old daughter to do the dishes. There wasn't many either day. This is her one chore and not even every day. Most days I do them. But for two years I have threatened her that if she doesn't do them when told her to I will take every dish out of the cabinets and she will wash them all. So today I did that. Does this make me mean? My father did it to me. I think its only fair. There are 8 people in my house I think everyone should help out. Bash if you feel like you must, however I do not think it will change my mind. She needs to learn to respect what I say. Right?
