Would you make your teen get a job at 16?

My parents did. My mom took me to taco bell. I got hired on the spot. I worked there from 96 until January 1, 2000. My parent were always fighting so I was always at work. When I got paid my mom took my check and gave me 20 dollars. This lasted until I quite in 2000. I asked my mom what happened to my money. She told me it got spent. I work 60hours each week sometimes 80.

I would go from school work all night go back to school. Did the something over and over. On spring break or no school I would work from morning until night. Then start all over again. With my mom spending all my money

Not unless they wanted to. My job is to provide for them until 18, and I will.

No. My mom would not allow me to work until I was out of high school. My car, insurance, fuel and spending money was all paid for by them. My mom said that I will have the rest of my life to work and be an adult, this was my time to be a teenager who didn't have to worry about being at work. But I did make good grades and for the most part I was a good kid.

My parents made my twin sis and I but never took our money. Our money was for pocket money and gas in our car and such.

Not like your mom did.  My son will need to get a summer job but not work during school.

Yes I started working at 15 full time by 16. My parents charged me $200 a month rent.
I plan on my kids having a part time job at 16 but I won't take their money.
