When your child becomes of working age and They want a job would you let them work while they're still in high-school?

I expect my teens to work at a job of some sort...unless they are highly involved in sports or school clubs or seriously making straight A's and totally studying for college or something. I had a job as a teenager and it was so cool to be a little independent and be able to buy my own things. I think it's good for teenagers to work.

 As long as it didn't affect his school work i would encourage it! I'm lucky that my SO will be able to get our son work at his job during summers if that's what my boy wants.. I think its good to teach a kid about money and responsibility before he goes out into the world.

Ya, I worked my first job at ihop when i was 14, Im sure my boys will probably find summer farm help jobs when they are old enough.

My oldest son worked all through high school and made a lot of damn money! As long as is grades were at least a B+ he was allowed to work. He is now in college on a full scholarship.
