ok, to help yall out ill give you my standpoint from me, a 14 year old. my parents dont do anything and i found sailing on my own. sailing has now been all i ever want to do. give your kids an example of people who work crap jobs to come home to watch t.v. that was all the motivation that i needed. i knew i was never gonna be like my parents. (for example... my dad has a 2010 shelby gt500 mustang but never drives it, has a closet full of guns and never shoots them) but remember if your kids want to do nothing, let them do nothing. show them a better path and let THEM choose. dont force them.
