My son does not believe I can get a good suggestion on Cafemom for a job for a teenager.

What is a good suggestion for my teenager son who is 15.

  • doing odd jobs for friends or neighbors- they have pretty much been listed.
    At that age, it's gonna be really hard to get an actual job somewhere

  • Do you have a local siding, windows or door installer in your area? When I worked at one around here, we always hired that age of teen for clean up. Also, a local construction company.....

  • Corn detassler. Seriously, I read about this last night. Okay, so you might be inadvertently sprayed with pesticide and have to be hosed down by the fire department but they pay $13/hr!
