my son is 18 and living away from me, i live with my partner and his 2 sons (aged 13 and 16) for the last year and half. My main issue is with chores. I like a house to be clean and tidy but as he didnt ask them to do chores before i think he and they feel like they dont need to do them now,i feel like a slave. Doing a dishwasher or taking out there own plates, cups, wrappers doesnt get done etc seems to be left for me and iv had enough. They have been asked to do them but never do and i feel my frustration building everyday when he doesnt back this up or ask them to do it. I am starting to hate him now and feel alone and angry. Iv now decided i am not cleaning the house just doing my mess and washing to see if this works...... This is my last resort as iv tried talking to him but he gets defensive saying they are kids they shouldnt have to do anything. PULLING MY HAIR OUT!!!!!!
