Does your teen have a job? At what age did they begin working?

My daughter does not work. During the summer she takes a college class and has an internship at the Museum. She is in 10th grade.

  • My aren't old enough to "work" yet. I worked from 16. I worked full time when I turned 18 during my senior year. I kept my GPA up over a 3.0 and still graduated on time. I think it is ALL child and family dependent. I worked and will encourage my children to work. I want them to have a good work ethic and be able to keep up their grades at the same time.
