My son is 15 1/2 yrs old. He's a good boy but a little lazy or has a lack of responsibility. - have always had to really get on him to get him to help around our home. He is helpful if there is something for him to gain from it. He is smart and thinks ahead, he can plan things out and be a little manipulative to create work to his advantage. He was just given a job by our neighbor on his farm. He has been waiting 4 yrs to get big enough to do the hard farm work. He worked his first day (10 hrs) and came home exhausted. He called the man himself and told him he wouldn't be able to work much because of his sports schedule. We are making him go back and give it a second chance and work part time (4 hrs/day) do you think we are pushing too hard to make him work this young?.
