Do you make your kids do chores? Some parents think their kids have too much going on with school, extra-curricular activities, jobs, etc…to help around the house. This can have negative consequences. Jim Fay explains…
 
Sweet Aunt Sara has reached an advanced age. She is now so feeble that she can't take care of herself. You bring her into your home with the intention of making her remaining years comfortable. Since she is not strong enough to help out around the house, and knows that, you tell her that she no longer needs to help. You will take care of her every need.
 
Wouldn't you think that she'd be so appreciative that she'd become sweeter and sweeter by the day? Not so. You and I both know this is not what happens. In turn, she becomes increasingly difficult to live with. Why is this?
 
This phenomenon is known as hostile dependency. Embedded in the human soul is the drive to be independent. It is common to hate the feeling of dependency and quickly transfer the blame to those who make us feel dependent. Their good intentions are soon forgotten, as anger sets in.
 
This situation is often seen in teenagers who live like honored guests in the home; those whose parents don't expect them to do their fair share of the work around the house; those parents who treat their kids just as we are treating sweet Aunt Sara.
 
Do your kids and yourself a favor. Expect every member of the family to share in the workload.
