I am encouraging H to get a part time job over the summer since she turned 15 earlier this month.
Part time as in 1-2 days a week. Really nothing more. That's all she really needs to work. It's more for the experience with the extra BONUS of spending money for her. H has some promising prospects and she will know more next week.
There is also the possibility that she will be babysitting for some from friends of ours. H has already taken the babysitting class at the American Red Cross. I know H would do great!
I think part of me doesn't want her to grow up. Even Supermom cannot slow or stop time.
Back to working at the age of 15. I got my first job at 15 working part time at Ingle's running a register. It was lots of fun!
I think all kids should be encouraged to adventure into adulthood.
Even if it is part time.
