What to do with a lazy child? :( He tries to get out of anything that isn't fun to do, boring or just requires
some extra effort on things he isn't interested in, like his homework...
I also tried to teach him that everything has to be "earned"...even his computer time.
I have come across some male family members that just stay home, claim they can't find a job but it's clear that they are expecting to be taken care of by their mommies.. I also don't want to raise him to believe that he can just sit home and expect his woman has to support him. I've seen those too and they scare me... My relatives have a habit of giving out cash money to kids (not me ofcourse) so he starts to call it "his" money. I told him that the only money he can call "his" is his paycheck when he earns it. He lookes at me, not understanding half of what I mean. I said that if someone gives him $ as a gift it's just cause that person is nice. I'm confused with the earning idea and the free money issue, which looks like a problem to me while no one else cares much.
