Dirty dishes and roommates
I HATE finding dirty dishes left in the sink. I work from home so today I’ll be looking at this gross pan all day.
I guess Kristen, 22, forgot I wrote a book on how childhood chores cultivate capable confident young people and that I’ve retired as the family servant!
It’s ironic because Kristen lived with three slobs in her apartment during her senior year of college. Their kitchen and bathroom were disgusting. No one ever cleaned up their mess. When I saw the kitchen last week, it was pretty bad. Kristen said it was relatively clean compared to its usual condition.
Maybe I’ll leave her a copy of my book where she can see it. The note is a form of mutual respect. It’s better than nagging. It’s how I would treat a roommate.Explore posts in the same categories: chores, Encouragement, How chores empower children, motivation comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
