Jade also says she takes issue with the amount of chores her mother makes her complete. “I feel like the chores are excessive. You have to do the dishes, take care of the animals, get my sister ready, clean out my mom’s car and the bathrooms, her room, my sister’s room,” Jade says. “With all my chores and taking care of my sister, I don’t feel like I have time to have fun. I don’t think it’s fair. Why can’t she ground me? I’m only 12 and I don’t need all the responsibility she’s giving me.”
