“This family does not function without everyone shouldering some of the load.”
“I make the girls do everything themselves. In the mornings, they are responsible for eating breakfast, packing their lunches and making sure their homework is in their backpacks. I say: ‘School is your job. It’s your responsibility.’ I don’t have the brain capacity to remember everyone’s
details anymore, so it’s on them. They also do their own laundry, empty the dishwasher, set the table and help make dinner. Even the 5-year-old is training!”
