If he needs money then he should earn it, even if you are to have pity and give him money-before doing some sort of "job" to earn the money is enabling him not to need to work. My son would rather play video games than work- so until he feels pain from not having he will not move forward into finding a job. I know this is frustrating and we don't want our kids to miss out, yet each time they feel no pain-they have no reason to work....need painting done, yard work, or any other task that can earn him money to do things-start there and as he gets confidence and takes pride in doing, he will eventually grow up and go to work....
