I am thinking of comissioning some research into the correlation between teenage hormones and the sudden inability to place socks in the wash the correct way round.

Dd3 is nearly 11 and is just starting to show some signs of raised hormone levels and the first thing to change is the sock thing!!

Its wierd because she has Asd and is quite obsessive about this kind of thing. I was truely hoping that she would skip this phase.

The other 2 Dd's nearly drive me bonkers with thier washing and Dd2 has been doing her own since 14 Dd1 was 16 but I got wiser grin

I know in the big scheme of things socks (and other washing) are not really important but why do they have such a problem turning bloody socks roundgrin

If they did their own I wouldn't be able to instigated my sniff and shake policy.

Think yourself lucky. When DS was a teenager his sucks were not allowed to be put in the washing machine with other 'normal' clothes.
They had to he bagged in a sealed plastic bag till end if week then washed on a hot wash alone.
His trainers/shoes were not allowed to be taken off till said socks were taken off too.
Trainers/shoes then had to be put on the OUTSIDE of his bedroom window.
Feet then had to be washed in hot water and lots if soap.
Dried and talc.
They still smelt.
So just not putting socks in the machine the wrong way is a let off smile
