Does your teen have a job? What is it?
if you're not
My first job, at 16-17 was as an artist's model. It paid really well compared to babysitting.
Yep my 14 year old starts work 4 us tomorrow he works in the kitchen...
Well, when he *was* a teen, he had a job (he has one now, too, but he's not a teen).
"If you can't annoy somebody with what you write, I think there's little point in writing."-- Kingsley Amis, British novelist, 1971 t .
My first jobs were pet sitting and babysitting for the neighbors.
my oldest is 13, we've talked about her doing something at the Y next summer which is when she will turn 14, but she's still young enough to participate in days at the stable, camps too, we'll see.
My 13yo has three regular sitting gigs a week, plus she usually sits at least once over the weekend.
DD2 esp would love a pet sitting job, she's told me she wants to work at an SPCA and walk the dogs everyday, LOL.
My 14yo does not have a job. She doesn't have time for a job.
