What's the best way to handle this?

What's the best way to handle this? Topic: The sisters dish
June 25, 2019 / By Abigail
Question: My sister in law (my husband's brother's wife), whenever we get together at my mother in law's house (and we do this every weekend), almost never helps to clean up, wash dishes and things of that nature, so I end up doing everything by myself. I've been tolerating this for over a year now, but I think it's time for a change. How do I handle it wisely?

When its time to do the dishes say... "hey girl common its time to do some cleaning, you do the wiping and I'll do the rinsing". When people dont do things on their own, telling them what and when to do it usually works.

I watch CNN and FOX. I like going through life with BOTH eyes open. So should you. So should us all. I am disturbed by the way my party (Democrats) have so easily lost their ethics in many cases and decided that free speech ISN'T their highest ethic after all. I have not, will not, ever be a socialist and selling my values cheaply will never happen for me. Keep speaking up. I may disagree with much on FOX news, but don't ever be silenced.

He has never met opposition before. He is just now learning how to deal with it. In reality, it is CNN, MSNBC, etc.'s fault. They babied him so much that he is just spoiled. Like a spoiled little kid (we all have a friend with one) he is pitching a little fit. Maybe he just needs a time-out. He could take a leave of absence and let Biden mess up for little while. I'm sure Biden couldn't mess up a perfect set up any worse. I mean really, a majority in the Senate and the House - you own the White House and you still drop the ball? How many Democrats wish they could turn back the clock and vote for Clinton?

First of all, if it's your mother in law's house, why are you cleaning up? Or why aren't the husband's helping? Either the host/ess cleans up, or ALL the guests help. Anyway, simply invite your sister in law to help you. "Jane, would you be a dear and give me a hand with this?" Then once you're alone in the kitchen, kindly explain to her that you like giving your mother-in-law a hand when she has guests, and the mother-in-law would be really touched if Jane decided to lend a hand. Start her out right by showing her where everything is (plates, cups, dishwasher, soap, trash, recycle, etc).

Stop doing this every weekend; your mother in-law allows this to occur. We should never have to give an excuse for stopping something; just say you don't want to do it anymore. If they care, let them ask you why and be honest. They are not worth your time and relationship if they don't care how you feel. Thanks what I think.

okay first of all you need to call children's pedi doctor as a nurse there are ways of seeing bruises that do not show on the surface . you need references from teachers friends family neighbors coaches about the kind of parent you are. people who know you and your kids. you need to be able to prove they are not living in good conditions and are unsafe. the fact that she is a register child abuser should help you case tremendously I would think. All you really have to do is file a modification for custody at your local family and probate court filing is free and having her served is about $40 for sheriff fee. your 18 yr old is old enough to talk and support what you say and so are any other children you may have over 15 or 16. Many fathers now a days are getting custody, they will probably assign a family services advocate which is a person who will come to your house and hers sit and talk to kids alone and ask questions these are experienced people who know how to weed out the lies. then after visiting they write a report and give to the judge their 3rd party unbiased opinion of where the children will be better off.Good luck will pray for you.
