mom . . you need lots of help
lets talk about what you can do to start helping me.
grandpas fridge is never this empty
get over it and get out of the fridge
why can't you keep this house clean?
because I have a bunch of little kids who won't help. here . . start folding these clothes. . . .
He is eight. he is old enough to help out and old enough to watch his mouth. You need to consistently insist that he help, consistently correct inappropriate behavior and inappropriate speech without yelling or giving in. You do not need to apologize for being different than your dad, you do no need to apologize for not having a lot of food in your fridge (it doesn't sound like anyone is going hungry), you don't need to apologize that your house is a mess nor do you need to apologize for making him pick up after himself.
