I absolutely hate it when my kids wait until the last minute to do something...so what are bad habits that absolutely set you on fire?

Carelessness! That's one thing that always makes me so irritated! My kids have this thing for carelessness, like nothing else matters but what they want. Sometimes they just forget about the more necessary things in life and I just can't figure out why. I would almost nag them about these things all the time. I really wish somehow they would start caring about the more important things in life!

Paulsy, I just don't know what to say, you just hit the nail on the head. I don't know what it is these days...just seems like the kids think they are automatically entitled to everything, they dont think they should have to work for it.

I cant stand when my children dont listen to me. They are old enough to know what I'm saying. My oldest is 4, and she only does something when she feels like it unless I get on her tail about it. If I'm doing laundry then she will offer until she is blue in the face to want to help me. But my youngest daughter doesnt listen period.

Maybe you need to find something that they really like and take it away as punishment for nopt obeying, to let them know that there are consequences for their actions.

The one thing I detest the most is disappointment. I can't stand it, especially when the person in question knows before hand that he or she can't grant your request and just doesn't bother to inform you before time.

I suppose the kids of today have a lot more to think about than there ancestors and tend to remember things when its almost to late to remember.
