Not a step issue
Now that I am not constantly distracted by daily dysfunctional chaos, I can get back to my regularly scheduled parenting.
Dear Neice is 20. Her mother was very abusive so she only had a normal childhood on her visitation days with me. When with BM she wasn't allowed to hang out with friends, get a job or anything. She was the live in babysitter for her younger sisters.
She works 35 hours a week and goes to school full time. She does clean up around the house and does her own laundry.
My question is I know she intentionally makes up excuses to avoid yard work. I know she finally has a social life and I support that because she is a young adult. I do get annoyed that she beats feet as soon as thier is work outside to be done. Should I count my blessings for what she does do and let it go or should I insist it is part of her responsibility for living here since she only is responsible for paying her own bills. Like car payment, insurance and phone.
