Advice to teenagers
What do you think?
Are our modern teenagers too lazy?
I think some are, but certainly not all. However, they didn't get to this point without their parents allowing it to happen. They aren't mowing the lawn, washing the windows or doing the dishes because their parents haven't made them do these tasks as they were growing up. It involves too much effort for parents, so they don't bother.
My two boys were helping with the housework from when they were little (it was hard work at time keeping them on track). Each were given a task to do and they learn how to do it, vacuum, dust, clean the toilet, put the groceries way, dry the dishes. Isn't that part of being in a family! Now that they have left home they can both manage their own homes - cook and clean (skills every male should have, its not just the domain of girls). I can't imagine what the houses of these untrained teenagers will be like!!!
|When everyone is pulling their weight at home what a differences it can make - even those who are very small!!! Housework becomes much more manageable and it gets done quicker. Mum shouldn't be doing it all. |
Isn't this adorable:))
