Giving children chores is now abusive to some
I was told the other day that by giving my children chores I was abusing them and the horror I actually make them wash dishes by hand because I refuse to buy a dishwasher. In 20 years I have never once had a dish washer and until 7 years ago my kids never washed a dish. I swear it does not make their hands fall off to put them in dishwater. BTW it was my cousin who told me this.
ETA: Do you think it is abusive? if so in what way?
