I honestly think that if teenagers can handle working part-time and attending school, then they should be able make that choice themselves. I don't think they should be restricted from working, or have such a hard time finding a job. Teenagers are highly motivated people, who have a desire to work and are good at it. Parents can't provide for the kids all their life, so in order for teens to feel responsible, they have to be able to provide for themselves!
Everything is possible nothing is impossible - Students can get experience by working as a part time side by side they can earn money too and get response on their own. The purpose of study is to earn. And Its a good practice in today world. But its their learning stage when they are in school. Studying college and earning is the better way to go for part-time.
It will surely bring awareness about finance ............but one should never forget . Education is more important at the same time. Job is secondary, when compared to education.If u are really well off.........because the grave necessary to earn to learn and for bread, butter will make the people to take their life challenging ,but if u have enough money ,you go to work just to show off your capabilities and to challenge your parents see how independent I am ?then you are truly in wrong way.
EDUCATION IS VERY IMPORTANT.
I have experience this in past and believe that "I am not lucky enough to learn with empty stomach, that's why I call it as destiny" ..... between the line of my statement is "Learning is important and no matter how you achieve the same"......ONE SHOULD NOT THINK OF DIFFICULTY .... JUST SPEND YOUR ENERGY TO OVERCOME WITH GRACEFUL MEANS.
Nearly every teen can benefit from job experience. But there are risks you must assess.
- A teenager's job can teach work skills that will serve him well in college and prepare him for careers in adulthood.
- He can acquire confidence, develop a sense of responsibility and feel more independent.
- Earning money will enable him to buy things he wants and will provide an opportunity for learning responsible money management.
- If you and your spouse work outside the home, an after-school job can give him adult supervision in those crucial afternoon hours.
- The right job—or jobs—may expose him to new work possibilities and set him on the path to a lifetime career.
- Working more than 13 to 20 hours a week is associated with lower grades.
- Teens who work too many hours find it difficult to keep up extracurricular activities and social relationships.
- Some studies have found that teens who work long hours are more likely to engage in such risky activities as using illegal drugs or alcohol—in part because they are exposed to older coworkers who lead them astray.
More important than asking if they should work please question yourself on What You Should Do
Teens don't like to be told what to do, so your best bet is to offer subtle, indirect guidance.
- Ask what he wants to get out of the job. Is it career preparation? A taste of career options? Another venue for his social life? Or is it just about the money?(make them focus towards an objective while selecting a job)
- Discuss the importance of maintaining good grades, continuing extracurricular activities and keeping up his social life.
- Talk about preparing a budget that includes saving as well as spending. Consider making him responsible for such expenditures as gas when he drives the car, a portion of your auto insurance and some of his entertainment expenses that you have routinely paid for in the past. This could turn out to be a good time to introduce him to real financial planning and investing in stocks, as well as saving in bank accounts.
Keeping Up the Good Work
If your child takes a job, you need to monitor how it's going.
- Visit the job site and meet the supervisor, so you know the work situation and the supervisor knows you're watching.
- Consider limiting his work hours at first, letting him work more only when you are convinced his school and social lives aren't suffering.
- Consider limiting or banning work on school nights, or restricting it to afternoons or weekends.
- Help him look for better jobs as time goes on, especially jobs that relate to his career interests or that would expose him to a wider range of career options.
Yes I agree with you but post is as a debate. Can't be an idea contest.
ofcourse android. It is really superb. Its more fast and the UI is better than symbian.
What do you think about teenagers working while they are still in school?
