Alyssa Perez, along with her siblings, just hated doing dishes. Most chores can be done rather quickly; toss some laundry into the machine, sweep the floor in a minute, pick up around the living room, etc. But doing the dishes took more effort than these kids felt like giving. All too often, they ignored the pile of dishes until mom was forced to step in.
Mom took drastic measures to make sure that her kids got the message.Mom had removed all of the dishes, cups, bowls, and utensils and replaced them with wasteful disposable dishware.
I was surprised at first because my family isn’t the wasteful type and I know washing the dishes would be much better for the environment,” she said. “I apologized to her and promised I’d help more around the house. She’s just glad her point got across.”
She received a lot of responses on her post, and most of them were concerned about the amount of waste the temporary dishware would create! But mom knew that this powerful lesson was going to make a big difference…and it has! The kids learned to take care of their home in more ways than one…and the internet got a good laugh out of it!
