I am a single Mum of 3 boys. Just wondering how others are able to get their kiddies to help out around the house. I am really struggling with this at the moment. I used to work in aged care, but had a breakdown in 2009. Since then I am overwhelmed (on and off) with everything I have to do for everyone.
Please don't tell me what I have done wrong or what I could have done when the boys were younger. I don't need criticism, in fact I am finding it a bit harsh at the moment, as it seems everyone that I talk to about it, can only point out what I should have done when they were younger not how to help now they are older. Teenagers are a different breed from primary school aged children.
The hardest part for me is the fight everyday to get things done. With appointments here there and everywhere, and yes I see doctors and counsellors and am on medications. I just want life to back to normal somewhat and ideas on how to get them to help out is high on my list.
Thanks in advance.
