I have made new chore charts for my kids. They just haven't wanted to do ANYTHING to help out around the house lately. So much so, they actually have been throwing huffy fits when we ask them to do something.
Have you ever seen the show THE MIDDLE? It is hard working parents and three kids, a teenage boy, a pre-teen girl, and a young boy. The oldest boy huffs and haws and doesn't do anything until the last second. The girl is a tad bit unlucky & uncoordinated (very), has long hair, and braces. Her first "boyfriend" was gay. The little boy is obviously smart, but talks to his armpits like their his best friend. We totally relate to this show. There is a lot of under-appreciation of the parents and that is how we feel around here - a lot.
So, here ya go kiddies - chores again! Hop to it!
