Where are your teenagers working this summer?

My son is 15. Haven't had much luck finding jobs who hire 15 yr. olds. Think it would be good for him to earn some money, be responsible, get out of the house, stay out of trouble etc. etc. etc. His 1st summer job.

  • Craigs List ( has job listings, some like yard work, suitable for 15 yr olds. Be careful, though, that it is a reputable person / employer that will pay for work done.
