Train your kids to be successful by giving them chores.
What are the benefits?
Are we raising teens to deal with real responsibility once they leave home? When we do things for our teens that they should have been doing for themselves from early childhood like cleaning their rooms, taking out the trash, and washing dishes, we cheat them out of feeling needed. Yet our teens can and often want to do much more than these simple tasks.
For example, why not give them a shot at planning all the meals for the coming week? Shopping for the food and even preparing the meals too? You might be surprised how they may relish the challenge and use the car too. Set a budget and challenge them to prepare everything within it. As an incentive offer rewards for meals on time and for staying under budget.
