#46 - They're nice enough to let OP live there. They don't have to, and a lot of parents wouldn't. Letting OP clean the house in exchange for a roof over his head is hardly the worst parenting in the world.

The thing is, you don't need to know the age of the poster in this situation. If OP is under the age of eighteen, he cannot be kicked out. If he's over eighteen, he should just be grateful that he has a place to live, regardless of the reason. A lot of parents *would* have kicked him out, as I said before.

Agreed! My flatmate is an extreme hoarder and this makes me depressed about where I live, so I avoid my flat often (until I move in summer). I'd much rather someone with OCD, as opposed to someone who hasn't cleaned in years (I sadly am not kidding about the "years" part).

23 for your instance I do help out around the house, I put in my part, what I was getting at in my last comment was that you shouldn't repay every time your parents, let's say go grocery shopping, you might do chores but you might not chip in money for the weekly shopping

#21, Judging by how your account says you're only 14, you were raised in one of the most laziest generations to exist yet. With the mind set you have right now, you won't make it very far in life. I bet you've never had a thing called chores, kids your age don't have to work for what they want, your parents just give it to you. Good luck in life kid, you'll learn the hard way.

Just because her generation is known to be lazy doesn't mean that every single kid in that generation is lazy. Every single kid is raised differently with different morals and has a different upbringing. I agree with her that you should have to repay your parents back for the essentials you need to live, as having kids, that's part of the job. But as a daughter you should help around the house and do your part. But criticizing a whole generation is idiotic considering I know people in your generation who are lazy, low lifes.

I do kind of get what #21 means though I think - i mean parents CHOOSE to have kids, the CHOOSE to have you (ideally). You didn't ask to be born. I mean of course the gift of life is incredible and we can very thankful to our parents who do so much for us but i annoys me when people say we owe our parents a lot and have to do everything they say. Because we do owe them alot. But they chose to have us, I don' think that means we have to obey them and it doesn't give them the right to treat us badly or anything (not that that is what the comments were saying). #12 the thing with OCD is it isn't just cleaning. It is a serious condition and the cleaning is obsessive - it means you can scrub the same bit of floor til your fingers bleed. So I would say that in this case it shouldn't be about OP cleaning to pay them back. OP needs help and support with this condition.

Haha sorry but I don't have any kids. and I thought it was pretty clear that OP is 18+ years of age, considering his parents could kick him out. So repaying them by cleaning for the essentials like having a roof over his head and putting food in the house isn't anything where as he can by law now fend for himself.
