- Parents Of Teens Are Learning New Roles in
A new baby truly only needs food and sleep in the first few months of his or her life. A teenager, on the other hand, requires much more. It seems as if the list of needs grows even faster than the rate of their height, from clothes that fit to face and body care, as well as school supplies and sporting equipment. Not considered splurges, such as new fashion accessories or video games, these necessities often fall under household budget (and do not come out of the Gen Z's allowance, summer job or savings account).
