Today I have my youngest brother come along to our work, I want him to get life experience and knowing what it's like to earn income and create work for yourself. He's 17 years old, spending his time playing video games.
What's your opinion about this? What's the best approach? Bad or good idea?
What's your opinion about this? Waste of time if he is living for free with his parents, if this is true the problem is your parents they need to stop all money and privileges, he needs to learn money has to be earned by working. he needs to need money enough that he wants to work for it
What's the best approach? Get your parents to start parenting, stop giving him money and games to play, disconnect the Internet and take the TV out of his room. get them to tell him to ask you for some part time work for his spending money.
Bad or good idea? good idea to be tough and charge board and don't give young adult money.
Teaching children to be independent is good parenting, Not is child abuse.
