My oldest will be 14 on Dec. 15th, which means that he can legally get a job in our state. Now I think it's great for kids to work part time. They learn responsibility and time management. I worked two jobs all through high school. But my son is still in middle school. Do you think I should make him wait until he's in high school or until summer break to get a job? He's getting pretty good grades right now, but he's not very responsible as far as time management, etc. I'm just not sure about a job. On one hand, he needs to learn responsibility and good work ethics. On the other hand, I don't want him to be overwhelmed with school and a job. Thoughts?
