Mom Has Had Enough With Kids’ Requests So She Made Them Work For It

We’re all sick of entitled parents and children. It’s really worrying to see how these children are going to grow as jackasses. But look at this mom who seriously means business when it comes to parenting without surrendering to the kids whining.

Shaketha Marion McGregor is a mother of three; 6-year-old Serinity, 10-year-old Takeia, and 13-year-old Jahkeem. And like any other children at that age, they begin showing interest in literally anything by house chores. So, Shaketha thought of a smart way to get her kids to work if she’s going to grant them what they way anyway.

Shaketha Marion McGregor surprised her kids as they got home from school with a hiring event.

By now, it has 214k likes with over 35k comments and 130k shares on Facebook.

The post got so popular, Shaketha decided to start another page to post updates on how the whole job-thing is going on.

Upon application, the kids are given printed forms to fill in their personal details.

Shaketha even has Mom’s Credit Union in place.

Shaketha who has to raise her three kids has to deal with a lot of family expenses. Having been separated from her partner, she has to find a way to stop her kids asking for new things they shouldn’t be spending too much on. We can all agree this method will actually teach kids more than they’ll ever realize.

It got even funnier when mom also typed and printed a rejection letter because the position was filled.

For the ones who are accepted, they are given this badge.

6-year-old Serenity has her own badge, yay!

A total of three job positions was made available: lead housekeeper, laundry supervisor, and kitchen manager. And now that all positions are filled, it seems that mom’s business is going pretty well indoor! Serenity even got a bonus for being quick on her feet.

These employees certainly have good prospects!

Mom has actually helped the kids grow up to be responsible people.

Studies have repeatedly revealed that kids are always encouraged to be given work that will help them deal with daily activities. By giving them responsibilities, they are also helped to grow up as adults who are responsible for their work.

Julie Lythcott-Haims, former dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University says, “When young people have been expected to roll up their sleeves and pitch in, and to ask how they can contribute to the household, it leads to a mindset of pitching in in other settings, such as the workplace.”

The opposite of that will “deprives them of the satisfaction of applying their effort to a task and accomplishing it.”

We hope no kids are fired and people are encouraging this family’s endeavor!
