  • Have her become a soccer referee. There is always a high demand for GOOD referees, and with summer coming up she can easily make $200 a day, paid in cash (usually). There is a class she'll have to go through, and will have to pay for registration, but the investment is worth it. SOME classes will even buy her a starter uniform when she successfully completes the class.

  • What type of businesses do you have in your area/what are the prevailing businesses within a 10 mile radious? What is the overall employment situation like as well? What hours and days can she work. All of these things will greatly affect not only what type of job she can get, but even whether or not she can even find a job.

  • well... time for her to grow up and find one.
    she can look in the paper.
    she can go door to door at the local strip mall and fill out applications.
    this is something SHE needs to do.... not you.
    this is HER time to learn... you have been there done that.

  • With the job market the way it is, it can be tough. What about babysitting? Lots of people need summer child care for their school age children during the summer. Check into local summer camps. They also hire teens to do sports, arts & crafts and other activities with kids.
