how do i not take it personal and at the same time change the behavior when it is issues that have been talked about, explained in great lengths and my child keep doing it like what i say doesn't matter b/c i won't do anything about it anyway. For example putting three loads of laundry into one load...or doing their chores completely which are not excessive at all, and when i remind i hear yes mom i know...but i get up the next morning and it is not done...I used to just do it myself when i was a stay at home mom but i have not for a couple years now. They all have a chore list of daily things, very easy and age appropriate. My children know that in the past i was too tired to check to make sure things were done and i also have been a softy and never followed thru with punishments...now i am and have been doing these thing and becoming more consistant in following thru but i could use any advice or suggestions anyone may have b/c i am really at my witts end. Thanks ahead of time...
