Today, many businesses are having trouble hiring young people who want to work. Many business owners tell me they hire young people, but they last just a few days or weeks because the work is too hard, not what they expected, or they didn’t want to start at the bottom. Why is this happening? In many cases it’s our fault as parents because we don’t always force them to work hard at home or school, give them everything they want, or tell them they deserve the best. Perhaps we should change our approach. Teach hard work daily. Provide opportunities to work for things they want. And remind them daily that you rarely start at the top. And teach Philippians 2, do ALL things without grumbling.
