Hey everyone! It has been awhile, but this has bothered me for years. What do you all do to deal with the lack of cooperation? How do you keep sane? My son is almost 18 and going to be a senior. He eats all the time. He also cooks. He does not join in family meals, if he does he does not help with any part of prep or pick up. His dishes are always left throughout the house, and he doesn't realize that the animals (pets) are making a mess because he refuses to to put food and used dishes away. I have locked all pantry goods that he cannot have in my room so he does not inhale them when I bring them home from the store, but fridge and freezer items end up being up for grabs. Ice cream - gone, milk - gone, crescent rolls (raw) - gone. What do all of you do to limit and/or train your teens appetite and mess making?
