difficult child does absolutely nothing at home. I have been "nagging" him to help out. Clean his room, shut off his light. I ask him to put his clothes away. I wash fold and even bring them into his room and set them on his bed. He throws them on the floor! I tell him I tell husband that difficult child needs chores. No response at all from husband and difficult child tells me that he doesn't have ANY friends that have chores. So, I asked around. Some kids have a whole LIST of chores. How can I get him to do anything? I would be happy with the smallest thing. Saturday morning there was a neighborhood garage sale going on. husband and I were outside doing things and we had to put the puppy in the house because she kept wandering off, and running up to people. Well, puppy was in the window whining and barking. This woke up difficult child. Both husband and I noticed later that we had phone calls on our cell phones from the house phone at this time. difficult child actually picked up the phone in his room to call us because the dog woke him up! We didn't have our phones with us outside. difficult child got up and you could hear him screaming at the dog houses away. It was almost 10am. So lazy that he couldn't even walk outside to talk to us if he had a problem!
