You. Hello and good evening. Swell. So I'm back, and I don't know what I want to talk about. I'm sitting out here in the car, waiting on my daughter to get off from work, so let's talk about that. How many of you feel that your child should work while they are, you know, in high school? You how many feel that, and how much do you let them work? So my daughter got a job

If they started a little business and making money, I wouldn't mind them doing that. Just as long as it doesn't interfere with their studies. Just as long as they're not slaving away at this job and not able to get up and go to school or too tired to do anything because they're always working. I don't want that. My sister did that when she was in high school

I was working jobs since I was 15, part time, and then by the time I was 17, I graduated high school and I was working three jobs and one part time, one full time and one seasonal and also in college. And that was what I did for the first two years of college. So I think that it's definitely possible. Looking back, I'm not sure how I managed it all, but it taught me a lot. So I think it's important

But that store was a store that my older son worked at all throughout high school and even throughout college. He worked his way up to be like head cashier, shift leader or something like that, but a real level of responsibility in retail. And what was so great about it, because it was a clothing and sneaker store, once he started working there, I haven't had to buy him clothes ever since

You don't just say their first day, ask your daddy, how are you doing? But she does it to me, too. She'll pull up to the store, say she wants something, she's going to get something for work. And then I'll ask her, I'm like, okay, well, go in the store. I don't have any money. Kids do it. Kids do it

But I wanted to show my kids that the value of money, because kids often think that mom and dad just give them money, and it just comes easy. My daughter, she does buy her own clothes and shoes, and I get her things too, but she buys for the most. She buys her own stuff, and when she gets paid, I make sure she takes so much, puts it into her bank account so she can save for her car and then so much in the other one

Hello and thanks for replying. It has been a minute since I've been on here. Life's really been hectic work. It's like twenty four seven and I'm low staff so so it kind of makes it hard for me to get on here. Plus I had some other things going on in my life, so sometimes we get a little busy

And a lot of these kids, I think in school, or at least my students, a number of them don't see the practical benefit of education. They ask what is it good for? And I think this does a number of things. It gives them an option

Let me take all my friends out and blow all my money spending it on them because I make money, whatever the case may be. But yes, I think it's a great asset for every teenager to have. I believe that there should be some type of ground or limitation or set. The way in which you have for your daughter 20 hours out of the week. It can't interfere with your schoolwork

Because one day you as the parent will not always be there. Plus, if you don't teach those kids these things, they can turn into spoiled brats. I have a family member who was like that. The parents were really rich and he was awful. He was a spoiled brat because they didn't teach him the value of anything. So he thought that he could just approach things however way he wanted. He didn't understand the value of money, even in his twenty s
