I honestly spend time trying to make sure my kids can do some things independently... but after a rough time, I feel they all act as if I'm indispensable! After a rough month, I take ONE DAY to start Gilenya (and from the kids' perspective, a whole 1 1/2 hours after school ends)... and I find all the chores, cranky kids, and nobody being fed. Seriously? I have dealt with this for a few years now... why does everyone need me now and suddenly can't function without me?

Kids will be kids - my 14 year old is quite capable and quite a procrastinator without constant 'encouragement' from my wife and I.
Don't stress over it!
