Carolyn Hax: Teen should take initiative with Mom’s to-do list, not watch TV

DEAR CAROLYN: I am a generally happy, young teenage boy. I have recently been upset with my mother, because I feel she has been unfriendly. Whenever I ask her if I can do something, she replies that I have to mow the lawn first, or pull weeds out of the garden. I make simple requests, but it seems that I can’t have any fun unless she gets some benefit out of it.
