Lazy Kids – What’s Really Going On!

Tags: , , ,

Idleness goes against North American family values, so as a society, we loathe the lazy. No one wants to raise a kid who is a slug, a slouch or a burden to society. But are your kids actually lazy?  Probably not!  Read my latest article on HuffPost Canada Parents website to find out what might really be going on!

Are my kids lazy?

    I have a great granddaughter aged 11 who lives with a very depressed father. Her mother is a drug addict and her grandmother can’t stand her. She is a slob, she does pretty well in school but rarely if ever brings friends home. She isolates. Her room is a total mess and when her grandmother comes for a few days her grandmother cleans up and the 11 year old and grandmother fight. They get into verbal shouting matches and say they hate each other because of the mess. I have made suggestions but I live 200 miles away and am 82 years old and my husband is 90. We love them with the love of God in Jesus and suggest that they get help. Is there anything that I can do in your opinion
