Teens Working

When your child is legally old enough to work (not like babysitting gigs) will you encourage them to hold a job? All the time or just in the summer?

    all the time
      I would encourage them to hold a job! I used to walk horses at a local barn at the age of 12... my parents instilled a great work ethic very young!
        I think it should be encouraged that they work, when its time. I know I had too, it taught me a lot of things that before then didn't matter to me or that I didn't realize. Like where the money came from. I know when I started to buy my own things, I appreciated them more and took care of my things better. I also learned to respect how hard my parents worked to support me and get the things I wanted. Its a life lesson I think that needs to be learned, rather then taught.
