*Teens are masters of putting off chores until you get mad and do them yourself. Don’t fall in that trap. Make not doing the chores costly to the teen, by depriving them of something they want or need, and the chores will get done. By them. Pronto.
*Nothing feels as good as buying something another wants to get rid of, and getting years of good use from it at a bargain price.
No labourer in the world is expected to work for room, board and love except the housewife.
