Telling my teenage son that I received a call from his girlfriend on his cell and she is asking to go to watch a movie and today is Sunday and you have to complete all the cleaning work at home and I will let you go watch a movie with her if you will do that plus I will give you some money to spend on her.
It is my belief that if I will have a son one day, I will make him active like this. I do not like lazy people and I do not want my teens to become procrastinators.
A Girlfriend or a friend who will be there or say dude lets chill and such. At least that worked for me
Don't be a chauffeur, cook and maid for your teen! Teens can do a lot of things for themselves, and sometimes the only way they'll discover the satisfaction of being self-sufficient is when the maid, cook, and chauffeur are on strike. Maybe all the "servants" shouldn't "go on strike" at the same time though... and a few "how-to" lessons might be needed. Keep the lines of communication open. Have a sense of humour, and know that your kids are smart people and can learn new skills when they are motivated. Good luck!
Request help and teach your teen how to do it well enough so it really helps.

If you look at the hp forum metrics how is it any more active than the now defunct questions section? If you objectively look at the views and the comments stats on either the questions, or the forums, you would have to conclude that as far as active members, there can't be anymore than a couple of...
