Living free does not mean you don’t have other responsibilities. You should be preparing yourself for your adult life and the “real” world. Do you own laundry, keep your bedroom clean, clean up after yourself and help prepare family meals.
If your parents are both working and you are not, there are a multitude of chores you can do where you can earn your keep: mow the yard, take out the trash, vacuum, etc.
When you are contributing to better yourself and your family, believe it or not, you will appreciate what you have so much more.
Tyler, even though growing up is rough, once you’ve done it, it’s awesome.
