When A Parent Decides To Strike

When kids refuse to do their chores, most parents cave ... and do the job themselves. But one mom decided to go on strike.

Kathy Buckworth is a mom of four and the author of the forthcoming book, "I Am So the Boss of You." She shared her thoughts. Listen audio (runs 6:25)
