It is five o’clock in the evening when Rene Wagner came home from work. She walked into the living room and looked at her three children. They were 14,13 and 9
years old. They were watching TV. The living room was a
mess.There were dirty socks on the floor and cookies on the sofa. Games and toys were everywhere.Rene was angry,“This place is a mess” she told her children, “I can’t work all day and then do housework all evening. I’m not going to do housework!” Rene didn’t do housework. She didn’t clean or wash dishes. She didn’t wash clothes, either. Every evening she sat on the sofa and watched TV.
