Texting step kids with an issue
So the other day my step kids left and DH asked them if they cleaned up their room and they said "yes" so we took their word for it (first mistake) So the next day I went in to see if they had any laundry and lie and behold their room was a mess! I texted them and said "hey guys! You left some dirty dishes in your room. Please make sure you clean up next time"
well our family therapist was like "don't ever parent over text snd next time help them clean the night before"
usually I agree with him but this one has me stumped. Ok obviously we would never text about anything important but I didn't see an issue with this. It was just a reminder. Second why are we going to help teenagers clean their rooms??? I'm confused. Thoughts??
