Dear Carolyn: I bought a house about a year ago and my daughter and her three kids moved in with me. I am single and live downstairs in the in-law suite with a roommate who is my friend.
The children are 13, 10 and 2. My daughter is 30. And to say they are lazy and will not under any circumstances clean anything is an understatement of Biblical proportions!
My only request for her living here was to please keep the house clean. My daughter does not pay any bills here, just my roommate and I do, and our space downstairs is always clean. It is just a kick in the teeth when they are so disrespectful. I keep asking, yelling, demanding, talking, but nothing! My friend suggested we take all the dishes, cups, glasses, silverware, box them up and just give them disposable everything.
