Does your teen have a job? What is it?
if you're not
My 14 year old does not have a job.
My dd will be a teen next year. She wants to get a job at 14.
I worked for about 4 months when I was 17 years old. Met my dh there.
Besides babysitting, I was a "bus girl" in a local restaurant at 14 and at 17 worked alone in a tiny diner doing all the jobs; cooking, serving, dishes. It royally sucked! But the money was good for my age. I stayed in the restaurant industry all through school and until starting my first "grownup" job, and occasionally part time when I was single and had nothing better to do.
I don't have teens, but my oldest nephew works at the same restaurant I did at 14, and my other nephew is stocking shelves at a grocery store.
I babysat regularly starting at about 13 years old, and a family had me on contract for Saturday nights when I was 15/16.
Mine doesn't have a regular job, but he is doing some freelance website work.
I went over this forwards and backward with DS so he is giving up his basketball this season his choice ...
My 14yo does not have a job. She doesn't have time for a job.

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.
