I worked in highschool.
I worked and no impact.
I worked the summer between my junior and senior year and the summer after my senior year. I worked all through college. DH started working when he was about 9 (delivering papers) and has worked (with a few small breaks) ever since. My work ethic is better than DH's by a long shot, imo. I don't think it has any impact on our work statuses.
Why only count the jobs during high school? I've been working since i was 10. I shared a paper route with a local boy; he didn't like to work during the summer and my parents wouldn't let me work during the school year, so it was a perfect fit. I began babysitting when I was 13. By the time I was in high school, I'd been working for years.
I had two regular babysitting clients in high school and I also worked first as a waitress and then as a cook (much preferred being a cook to waiting tables) at an A&W at the mall. Most of the time I rode my bike to the mall for work, although my Mom would drive me in the dead of winter.
I don't know that working had anything at all to do with my choice in parenting, other than to teach me that WOH is a perfectly normal thing for people to do when they think they need money. Other than that, I probably don't really get your question.

I worked, babysat and played sports - for me it was anything but being at home.
I guess in some ways it influenced my later decisions because I did a god job and was appreciated for doing the work. Boy that rarely happens in my job as a mom - no job is completed - because they make more dishes, they make more laundry, there is alwasy another dinner to cook. In the positions I held I could feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
