Your mother doesn't work here
Clean up after yourself
Do your own dishes
A few years ago I listened to a Focus on the Family programme where Dr Leman said that a lot of the problems parents, dare I (Sapphire) specify - mothers, are having with their children is they haven't trained their children to know the difference between a home and a hotel. He went on to say that parents continue to wait "hand-and-foot" on their children - from when they are toddlers into their tween years. If you ask me, it is simply ridiculous! I agree that "Home is where the heart is" and the hotel is where the hired hand/maid is.
