A new study suggests that working more than 20 hours per week does more harm than good for high school students.

It probably averages out to about 5 hours a week.

My son (17) doesn't work during the school year.

I think even 20 hrs a week is a lot for high school (during the school year).

DS18 worked about 12 hours/week when in HS; now down to about 7 hours in college. He doesn't feel he could do more than that and still do what he needs to for school.
