Summer jobs

I started working at 15 years old. I have a couple cousins coming up to visit their family for the summer I want to suggest to the older that she try to get a job when she gets home. She's a junior in high school any thoughts?

  • Any thoughts? Honestly, she's your cousin and not your child. Not your place.

  • Just suggest it and leave it alone. Not all kids need to work as teens. Some can't handle school and a job and school is more important.
