Teens Honing on Laziness

Yes, the millennials are known to be a generation in which they think they are entitled to everything without having to do any work. The newest of the millennials are even worse! These guys don't even want to learn how to drive when they turn 16. Can you believe that shit!?

Seriously, many teens, nowadays, do not desire to develop basic survival skills for the future. One of them is learning how to drive. Because of Uber and Lyft, teens now have a service that takes them everywhere. This also promotes their wanting to relax all day after school and do nothing. Many of them are also not wanting to get a job.

I am basing this from being an Uber driver and this is the info I get from new parents. No joke! Also, when I have teens, they tell me that they don't need to learn how to drive since there is so much public transportation available, such as Uber and Lyft.

Obviously, these are kids that have parents who pay for their Uber and Lyft. This could be enabling teens to be lazy since mom and dad can find a ride for them every time. Once they find out that they have to pay for their own rides, it might encourage them to get a job. Once they see that Uber an Lyft can take a toll on their earnings, they might think about buying a car or leasing. Who knows?

The reality is that teens do not seem to be inspired by anything nowadays except to go to school and get a degree. The old vision of wanting to be super-rich without doing any work is still there with the news teens.

Another thing that teens need to know is that book smarts is not the only way to survive in this world. Kids need wisdom and life experience to move on as well. Not learning how to drive and not wanting a job at an early age could take a huge toll on their outcome late in life. A job definitely develops people's skills, right?

In the end, teens seems to be honing on laziness instead of honing on developing skills. So parents, stop giving them so much. Do not feel bad in giving your kids responsibilities. Maybe cut off money once they are 16, so they are encourage to get a job. Push them and they shall go forward. Do not let them choose laziness over living a life!
