Ahh you need to move into the country, there are ag exemptions for family child labor.
Oh, so realistically, to be a responsible parent, we all need to move to a farm.
That clarifies a lot for me.
It is a lot better place to raise children than the city.
I was expecting a thread on teenage pregnancy
my dad got me in with a place where I could start workiong summers at 14. it really did teach me a lot about how to handle money and respect the hours & time needed to really 'earn' money. (I think I was making 7$/h the first summer, the job was from 630am to 230pm in the new orleans heat all day). All the other kids in my high school had their parents buy them top of the line cars and even though I had the shittiest car in the senior parking lot it still felt good that I bought it with $1000 of my own money.
if you (or maybe someone close to your family) has some extra money that they normally spend on the kids, you could tie this into a working system inside the house/family. come up with some chores/tasks and give them a fair rate and make the kids do them to earn the money. you should also have a system where they *must* do a few things each day so they learn a schedule, but then have extra bigger things that they can earn money from if they take their own initiatve to do it.
not always true. if a child is raised to be strong in terms of goals and boundaries, then they can avoid the filth normally assoicated with a city while still experiecing the culture and diversity associated with it.
Nothing is always true. I see plenty of poorly raised kids in the country as well.
But there are more opportunities for raising children better in the country.
I believe if it is a family owned business, the kids can start at any age. My students that have jobs are far more mature and productive than most. Work does not have to interfere with school. It can actually be a great way for them to manage their time effectively.
learning that in highs chool is really good too b/c most people are forced to do it in college and its easier to learn (and make any mistakes with the money earned) while still living at home and being able to weather any monetary fuckups.
