I'm a working mom with a 16yoa dtr and 11 yoa son. Both children have chores and daily responsibilities. And yet at this age, neither will complete there assigned duties without constant struggles and reminders. Neither one will get themselves up to an alarm clock. Both my husband and I are baffled, at their age, we were latch key kids, got our selves to school and were able to stay out of trouble. How do you encourage your children to take responsibility seriously and stay committed to things they start?
