Skids getting jobs
Leading up to what I wanted to ask today - Exjuliemccoy said under another blog : "It comes down to the parenting, doesn't it? Weak/helicopter parents don't produce kids that are self reliant or confident. We see A LOT of stunted kids on this site, and while divorce can be a component, the substandard parenting usually goes way back before that."
I believe this to be 1000% true!!! DH has told me storeies about how before he and BM split up that SD was never made to stick with anything. Of course it was all BM's fault (insert sarcasim)! It makes me want to scream every time he tries to blame everything on BM. When they were together what stopped him from putting his foot down and saying she had to stay with something (dance for ex) or keep trying things until she found one she liked? His excuse not that they are divorced is that he lives in fear of upsetting poor SD and that she wont love him or want to come her if its not always fun and easy (aka she lays around doing nothing all weekend)
So SD finally got her own car. Prior to this the excuses for her not working were Coronavirus and the fact that I would be too hard for DH and SM to drive her to work and pick her up becuase of theri own jobs. Well she is back at school full time (in the school 5 days a week). BM is working at a daycare and DH and I really live our lives as if the virus is the same thing we need to be worried about as the flu. So what will be the excuse now?
She is here this weekend. Do you think DH will even suggest she goes and fills out some appications? NOPE! Anyways at what age did your kids and bio kids get jobs? (And I mean more than babysitting or walking dogs etc)
