I have 4 children aged 18, 16, 13 and 10. Love them to bits but the drive me crazy. All I ask is for a little help around the house but they are always too busy, then when they cannot find their shirt, or bag, I am the baddy. When an item of clothing they want is dirty or not ironed, I am the baddy. When I put food on the table, that they do noy enjoy, I am the baddy. When I ask them to just pack away the dishes, I am the baddy. Honestly, I yell, I scream, I am a stressed out Mum, though i always have been, and they blame me for been stressed all the time. Telling me to take it easy …. but how can I with no help?
I have a big house, and I never seem to be anywhere else in that house, because all I seem to do is cook and clean. Don’t get me wrong, they are good kids. Respectful to everyone, and don’t do anything wrong outside the house, but when I ask WHY? at home, and why the think its ok to scream at me they say, WELL YOU ARE MUM – I don’t know what to do. I have an amazing hubby, but the poor guy works 6 days, sometimes 7 days a week, so I cannot ask him to do more – I guess its the LIFE of a MUM
