Not very long ago, I sorted all the clothes out. Threw away anything worn, almost worn, or lacking a clear and rightful owner.
And yet, there is–once again–an enormous pile of clean and unclaimed laundry on my couch and floor.
All of my children deny ownership of any of it. I made them go inspect Laundry Mountain one by one. I made them do this three times.
Would it be ethical parenting to let every child have two t-shirts, one pair each of swim trunks and regular shorts, and a pair of flip flops for the summer?
I’ll even throw in a hand towel apiece to dry themselves with.
