Please offer your opinion on this subject as my husband and I differ on this matter. Do you feel that a 17 year old boy who doesn't do chores (except take out recycling and clean up his bathroom when told) keeps his room in a deplorable fashion, including throwing money on the floor, sits in his room playing video games whenever he isn't at his part time job (which he enjoys) have his 50.00 a month phone bill paid by his dad? i guess it's obvious what i think. i feel he should pay his own phone bill since he is so uncooperative. he is starting senior year and gets good grades without much, if any effort and refuses to be involved in any school activity or club. my husband feels he is entitled to the 50.00. i will look forward to your reply. Thank you.
