  • At college orientation, they told us parents to stop doing our kid's laundry. We haven't done Brennan's laundry since sixth grade, but apparently, lots of parents do it for their eighteen year olds. So why would you do for your kids what they can do for themselves? The answer I bet has more to do with you than them. Here's the thing, eventually your need becomes theirs when they are incompetent to do life and dependent on other people. Hey, quit doing their laundry!

Ron: Are you still doing your kid’s laundry?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: At college orientation, they told us parents to stop doing our kid’s laundry. We haven’t done Brennan’s laundry since sixth grade, but apparently, lots of parents do it for their eighteen-year olds. So why would you do for your kids what they can do for themselves?

The answer I bet has more to do with you than them. Maybe you don’t think they can do it right. Or maybe you need to be needed. Or you’d feel guilty for some reason. Whatever the specific answer, it’s your need, not theirs. But here’s the thing, eventually your need becomes theirs when they are incompetent to do life and dependent on other people. Hey, quit doing their laundry! For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
