Teenage Daughter unmotivated to work and earn money
I'm new to this forum and a single mom and thought it woud be a good place to start.
My teenage daughter is a typical teenager, but I'm unsure on how to deal with her unwillingness to go the extra mile at home. She is a straight A student and all her teachers love her. However, she gets home and is completely unmotivated to do things around the house and doesn't want to try and find a summer job to earn money (driver's training is right around the corner).
I don't know how to motivate her to doing more and thinking of others first. I know you'll say it's the typical teenager stuff, but I have to think that she can be better than that.
She wants stuff and her dad typically spoils her, which doesn't help.
How do I get her to be more motivated and to realize that she needs to have a better work ethic than the one she currently has - which is to just sit and be lazy? All of this without ruining our good relationship.
