My 11 year old boy doesn't take the initiative to do anything without being told to do so. I have to tell him to brush his teeth every night. I picture myself with a senior in high school having to tell him to brush. One of his jobs is to feed the dog every night. If I don't tell him every night to feed the dog, I guess he thinks she doesn't need to eat. I sometimes wonder if this is just him or is this typical 11 year old boy behavior. Does anyone know?
