13Taking Over The Tasks
She used to do everything simply because...well, she's better at everything.
A dear friend of mine has to grit her teeth whenever her kids or husband fold the towels. Why? Well, they stink at it. The folds are never lined up and the edges are hanging out all over the place. And don't even get started on how they end u
in the linen closet. Needless to say, the whole situation drives her absolutely up the wall.
Actually, she used to be a perfect example of the mistake we moms make when it comes to taking over the tasks for our kids (husbands are another story).
But that only leads to a stressed out mom and kids who don't know how to fold the towels. So, what's the solution? Grit your teeth at the horribly folded towels and smile because they genuinely tried to help.
