Today, after hours of protesting and tantrums, I finally got my kids to clean their rooms. They're all really proud of themselves and enjoying all the extra space. I'm stuck with the three extra loads of laundry they found in there. FML

In op's defence, her kids still may be too young to do laundry. Just because you can clean your room, doesn't automatically mean you are responsible or mature enough to use a washer and dryer. For all we know they're only 6 years old.

My kids are responsible for their own laundry once they turn 9. If I end up doing the laundry, I pick out what they will be wearing for the next week, something none of them want me to do.

when i was a kid i did as i was told, because if i didnt my dad would whip my ass. none of this temper tantrum for hours bullshit. either teach your kid to listen to people in charge or unemployment will.

Hey, just cause you probably need to hear it... you are doing a great job. Parenting is hard in the best of circumstances and strangers not picking at your need to vent can't help. I've found a great resource is a podcast called One Bad Mother. I hope you have a good support system getting you through the more trying moments of parenting.
