Some very interesting family dynamics there "shake", good that you all have found a way to make things work out like that.....but that definitely wouldn't happen in our household.

If my son(s) want to do something extra, they had better find time in their schedule to do it. If that means they set their alarm to wake up 30 minutes early "to pick up the dog doo", so be it.....but I'll be damned if I'm going to do it, just so they can run off and do something that they want to do, or think is more important.
Not criticizing what works for your family, just "different strokes"....that's all,
