Re: What does your teen pay for?

But I do appreciate the life lessons and feeling of accomplishment that kids get from working. I know I did as a teenager. I didn't "need" to work but chose to. It's just that times were so different then.

My DD puts in 12 hour days (on average - some are much more!) at school between classes and after school activities. She then comes home, eats dinner, then puts in 3-4 hours of studying per night. I mean, I never did that!!

I kind of feel like they are missing out by not having jobs, but I'm not sure that *they* (with their personalities) are suffering.
