Next, call around to your teen's friends parents and see what they will be doing this summer. Put your heads together and do some creative thinking about what your teens can do around the house. You can pay your teen and a friend to clean out the garage, and then the next day go clean the garage at the friend's house - getting paid by the friend's parents, of course.
The more you find for your teen to do on a daily or weekly basis, the more active he will be and the less you will have to worry.
