“If I went to work one day I would literally get calls from Joe saying, ‘Where’s the uniform? You don’t know where it is. You didn’t do that’ and it just served no purpose.”
Sharing her turning point, she added, “In the end, I just thought – maybe a year ago – you have to do it yourself and take responsibility, and if you forget your PE kit, you have to do it.” Get your imprisonment, this is life. “

“I don’t clean up the big boys’ rooms, I don’t go in there,” Stacey continued.
“If they want to live in the dirt, that’s their choice, but I know that every few weeks when they get tired of it they actually start tidying up their things and bringing their laundry down or whatever. The more I do it for them do the less they realize that they are actually growing up and growing up and needing to do it for themselves. “
