Our 16 yr old was all excited about getting a job before he turned 16, and got his license.... Now, 6 months later, he has his license, reliable transport, good grades, etc etc... So we told him he needs to find something on the weekends, and maybe one evening a week. He's applied online, but acts like he's afraid to walk in the places to follow up on the jobs.
We want him to learn some responsibility outside of our home. He's a great help around the house, out in the shop with his Dad, etc, but we feel he needs some real world experience before he actually has to go out in it on his own in a couple yrs. He has plans for his future, but he still has 3 months of his Sophomore yr left, and then his Junior, and Senior yr left.... Also, he's not involved in sports, he's in FFA, he's all into his Jeep, and dirt bike, and in order for him to support those things, he needs a job.
Any advice Ladies? Thanks.

Could he do odd jobs? In the summer, he could mow the grass. He could do errands for other people or feed animals/pick up mail newspapers for people on vacation. Maybe he has a talent that he could turn into his own business.
