    I have had enough, my children are quite capable of taking care of themselves. However they insist on mommy do this and mommy do that, I can't get it I'm to tired. These are the excuses they give me because they are to lazy to get up and get something themselves. So as of tonight I have officially gone on strike if they need something to eat or drink they can get it, their clothes in the morning for school they can do that too. They only things I will be doing for them is taking them back and forth to school ( because they do not ride the school bus. my choice)and making dinner (because they are to young to use the stove) and if they don't like dinner, tough shit make something else. I have a couple of spoiled, self centered, little brats. My youngest is under the impression that when he asks me for something and says please that means I should jump immediatly and get it. NOT! So it is time for some old fashion tough love.

    I guess I should give thanks to whoever posted the thread about the other parent's that went on strike. Hopefully this works for my guy's! Unfortunatley I can not move out onto the driveway because my kid's are to young and it is way to cold outside. I think the high tomorrow is suppose to be 36, with winds at 40 mph.

    Good Luck! Don't expect changes over night! Kids like to do things for themselves, with a little encouragement of course.

    Thanks, I'm going to need all the luck I can get! I'm hoping we only need to do this for about a week and then they realize that they can help out more and do things for themselves.

    ...From there, you can move on to "Well, it's a lot easier (and warmer) to do it yourself, than to come all the way out to the driveway to get me - and be told to do it yourself anyway. :D
