Today on Dr. Phil they had a couple different families who were complaining that their kids wouldn't do any chores around the house and that the parent's did everything for them. One mother had grown children living with her and the mother said that she paid all the bills.

The second family was a couple that had a 13 year old that refused to do chores and complained when her parents didn't GIVE her "enough".

Personally, I think all kids need to do chores around the house starting at a very young age. I do not cater to my kids. They all have chores to do. Now, I won't say they never complain about it, but they do do them. I see no reason to do everything for your kids. I don't want to be raising spoiled brats who thinks that the world owes them something.
