Hi everyone! I just found this site, and boy, does it every strike close to the bone! Especially the article about Demand Resistance. Not that any of it is a surprise to me. I'm a voracious reader, and in school I'd often avoid doing homework by reading. Unless the homework WAS reading, then forget it, I would never get around to it lol.

I'm a stay at home Mom, always at various stages of panic/guilt/avoidance over something. My kids are 8 and 5, starting grade 3 & 1. I'm really worried about how I"M going to keep up with all their school stuff. Schools are extremely dependant on parents for so much, homework, voluteering, school council etc, I almost dread school starting up again, as much as I need some time to myself.

Being a SAHM is MUCH harder than working for $$ (for me). Everything is open ended, no external deadlines - when does the shopping need to get done? What time is supper? Don't even get me started about housework! Everything about it confronts my worst character flaws, every day.

I could really relate to the person (sorry, cant remember your name) who said this is the worst addiction! I used to say to my husband who was trying to quit smoking - Sure it's hard, but drop us on a desert Island - you're cured, I can procrastinate anywhere!
