OK, I'm a single dad with two great kids. When they lived with their mom, my house was always clean. Now, I'm constantly having to bark out orders, in drill sergeant fashion - pick that up! Who left that laying there! Do the dishes! Wash the bedding!
It gets old, let me tell you. Once, I demanded washed and dried clothes be folded and put away the moment the buzzer went off. No longer. I let the dryer stay full and washer stay full until one of us needs it. Then the next person gets stuck having to do the next rotation.
Ultimately, this is exceedingly unfair. I'm afraid my wonderful child'n could be walking around in clothes dried soured and I don't smell them, because, afterall, they're teens and kinda avoid me.
What should I do?
