Are your teens hard workers? ⁠

Work ethic is a BIG deal, but sometimes we can feel a little guilty because we see all the things our teens don’t work hard at (hello, chores). ⁠ But then we watch how hard they work at swim practice, or with homework, or on the mural they are painting in their bedroom. So maybe they do have good work ethic?
