Daily Advice For Parents:

If children grow up with the idea that they can make decisions to create a life that works for them, the critical process of identity-building is underway. But if you continually intervene, run interference for them, and deny them the opportunity to decide personal preferences your kids can’t grow into adulthood being comfortable and separate human beings.

Some tips to help your teen or young adult understand the relationship between an honest day’s work and an honest day’s pay would be to talk about money, talk about the importance of taking care of needs first, not wants, then show them what you do at work and how you make the money.
