Kids and Summer Jobs

Updated 8 months ago

Ever notice how tight your child can be with their own money and how quickly they spend yours? When you haven’t worked hard for the money you are given even grown-ups can behave this way.It’s not just lemonade stands and yard sale toys! Here are some ideas from Education.com on how your child can earn money. Movie night- Host a Summer Movie Festival for families. Set up video viewing outdoors on a sheet or inside in the largest space you have. Charge a fee for snacks and drinks and let your children ‘clean up.’Vacation helper- Plenty of folks will be away for a week or two this summer. Maybe your industrious youngster could water their potted plants, mow the lawn or pick up mail.Computer whiz- Most kids know a lot more about all things tech than their parents. Develop a fee schedule for by-the-hour work or per particular job. This will definitely be win-win!At-home help- When the kids are home having a few extra hands can be a real blessing to parents. Hire your kids for around the house help for you, or rent those adorable kids out for help with friends whose children are younger and could use a playmate.Citation:Education.comhttp://www.education.com/magazine/article/Summer_Entrepreneurs_Money/Marion R.
