    I thought it was your turn to take out the trash.

    Nope. Did it all last week.

    Not when you had soccer practice.

    I swept the floor for you because—

    Whoa. Are chores becoming an issue again?

    Well, she …

    Well, he …

    Time for a family council.

    Later, at the end of family council …

    So, what have we decided?

    If we have a problem, we’ll talk it over. Help each other out.

    Even volunteer sometimes.

    I’ll improve the chore chart.

    And I’ll clean out the ice cream that’s cluttering the freezer!

    I’ll dish it up.

    I volunteer to eat it!
