For teens that are not working then they can help out with chores. Parents need to teach them responsibility in certain ways so once their older they won't be irresponsible in life. The more responsibilities a teen has the more it will help in his/her future and gain more freedom.Basically teenagers can have just the normal appropriate freedom for their age.
