Wondering this day and age kids seem like they do not want to get a job but they still want the car, and we pay for the car insurance and gas. I believe just because they are old enough to get their permit than they should be old enough to get a job..We need to teach them to be RESPONSIBLE now, before they think that just when they want something they should just whine and get it. What do you think?Answer Question

My son never had a job during his teen years at home.. Nearly 20 and still doesn't. . His job is/was pursuing his education.
As far as having a job to pay for things like: car, gas, insurance..etc.. He has never had those things ( I haven't even owned a car during his entire life).. So there was no need for him to work to help pay for them.

My kids (both 15) don't, but they also don't have a car, or the latest smart phone or whatever. My son is actively looking for a job at the moment, and my daughter babysits. Aside from birthdays and Christmas presents, they're expected to pay for most non-necessities on their own.
