This has been very painful, I've been battling it for about 2 years. Yes in the past I never cleaned up after myself, but now I am different. We are on vacation and I have been washing each dish that used. I accidentally blew up at my grandma when she told that I need to train myself to wash after myself, it is just a very sore subject for me. Anyways my dad accused me of having everyone clean up after me even though I cleaned each and every dish. When I tried to defend myself he pretty much told me that I could defend myself if I was right, but in this situation I cannot because I am totally wrong. That really hurt me. I used to be happy knowing that I cleaned up and hoped one day that he would see that I do help. My mom told me that since my room is dirty my dad doesn't see that I clean up. Idk what to do, see I thought cleaning up after myself would make an improvement in my life and get my dad off my back. This hasn't happened. What should I do announce every time I clean a dish? My dad is extremely stubborn and thinks he's always right.

Do you know exactly what your dad is referring to here? If not, then ask, it may be something other than the dishes, such as your room. But if it is the dishes, then keep doing what you're doing and don't worry about it (and maybe ask your mom if she can chip in a few kind words for you). Cleaning up after oneself is a good habit regardless.

It is the dishes cause he says the dishes, nothing to do w/my room at all.

Make sure somebody takes note of it whenever you do the dishes and get them to put in a good word for you. Bring it to their attention if you have to. Just don't bring it to your dad's attention just to do so (as I told you so) as this would be counterproductive.

Get out the old camcorder and record yourself while doing the chores. When your dad complains, show him the recordings.

Does your dad have OCD??? Some people you can never please. So how about you keep doing what you are doing and learn to ignore his crappy comments. Otherwise you could tell him exactly how you feel, just as you have told us!
