What are you talking about? There wasn't any logic to attack in what I said that you responded to. The only possible "logic" you could be referring to was my statement that I agreed with a previous poster- which apparently you took to mean that I was agreeing with someone who was NOT you, thus disagreeing with you, and therefore wrong. The arrogance of this attitude is astounding. FWIW I didn't even read all of your first post- or any of your others because they're too verbose for my attention span- but I am offended that you took the opportunity to single me out and criticize me for doing what most on this thread were doing- offering our thoughts and experiences to the OP. You may wish to read your post again if you think you weren't rude or belittling, because clearly you were.

Sorry, OP. I only posted to try to be helpful. I should have realized that the queen of motherhood had already said all there was to say and the thread should've been locked and closed. Gonna unsub, goodnight.

She doesn't know how to do laundry, much less how to do laundry and study and at same time right now, and therefore she ain't ready for college (even though she is already earning college credits!).  I think a parent should be walking her through how to do her laundry (which she can do while studying).

 

Well, actually... while admission may have already occurred, that is usually contingent on maintaining GPA. Admissions letters state this. So even if she's gotten in, her Senior finals DO matter. 

 

You may be surprised at how many college students do not know how to do laundry. My daughter did quite well for herself first term doing/teaching kids how to do it.

No one ever taught me to do laundry. Yet I had no trouble washing my own clothes when I went off to college. It's rather self explanatory. Put clothes in machine, add detergent, insert quarters. People can make it all complicated and talk about fiber content and water temperature if they like. But it isn't necessary. Sure the odd item might shrink but then it doesn't fit and it's no longer an issue;-)

Trash goes in a trash can, dirty clothes go in a hamper, and clean clothes get put away. Animal abuse/neglect will be dealt with accordingly.

The end.

 

The rest of it can be taught or worked on when things are not so stressful.

Oh, I agree! Both of mine picked it up easily early on. The only laundry that was an issue was my oldest washing the youngest's underwear. Fair enough. 

But so many people do make it seem complicated, that a lot of kids at my daughter's school were lost. She made good bank doing/teaching them how to do their wash. Also got her in good with the soccer, bball and lax boys! LOL
