Answer #1

At 13 your options are limited - make sure your grades don’t suffer: You’ll have to check the laws in your area - may require a permit..some ideas:

Baby sitting (only for persons that are trustworthy) Chores for trustworthy neighbors Car wash Bake sale Bus boy/girl Store stocker Paper route Dog walking Grocery store Lemonade stand Paint House number on street curb House sitting Message Delivery Pharmacy Delivery City, County, State and other government-run Youth Programs Vacation and Tourism spots Hotels/Resorts Parks and recreational areas Swimming pools, golf courses and campground facilities Day and summer camps Amusement/Theme/Entertainment parks Museums, Zoos and Aquariums Airport concession firms Childcare and Eldercare providers Health care facilities Business services (including) Moving and packing companies Pool and spa companies Lawn care and other maintenance companies Construction companies Movie theaters Fast food and restaurant establishments Ice cream parlors, juice bars Clothing and accessory stores Newspaper / Magazine Distribution

Legal Considerations: Not many people are aware that they break the law when they work without fulfilling the basic requirements that involve teenage work. So let us see, what this is actually. Note this is not an exhaustive list and hence for accuracy you should check with your local guardian or legal advisor (at school or at any social center). Also be aware the each State & Country may have different laws that cover teenagers working conditions.

Timings: Teenagers below 14 years old are usually not encouraged to work in offices. For those above 14 and above they should not be working at night. The legal hours are any time between 7 am to 7 PM ‘ of course ensuring that school is taken care of. Those between 16-19 years of age can be free to work as much and as long as they please. However, girls should always be wary and careful when working nights as crime increases at night. Work areas: Teenagers may work anywhere they can be engaged with the exception of places where they could endanger themselves or others, such as construction sites, repair sites or garages, chemical and other types of processing, mining, messenger jobs, warehousing, adult clubs and bars. Social security number: There are places where teens need a social security number to receive payment; Taxes: Most of the time teen jobs do not involve tax payments and need not have any dedication in the paychecks. However, you need to consult the local IRS to ascertain this. Each state and country has its own set of rules and what is valid in one may not be in another. Do not take anything for granted. Keep in mind that legal aspects are serious matters and you do need complication with the law. Check and be sure you fulfill all the legal formalities applicable for teenagers before you even apply for work. Ask the help of a responsible adult, such as your parents, teachers or relatives and seek out the correct answers - no such thing as a stupid question.

Wish you the best and always be alert, putting safety first !!

Answer #2

I recommend babysitting the Neighbors or a Relative. Although some Family members probably expect you to babysit for free. all I know is, I babysat my adorable five year old cousin for two days, (Not consecutively) have a lot of fun, and get $50!

During Spring & Summer Break you can see if anybody needs a Petsitter for a Dog or Cat or something. A few summers ago I got $50 for catsitting a cat for a week, and last summer a close friend gave me $70 bucks for catsitting for his two cats.

Or ask your mom or dad for an allowance IF you do work. Your mom and dad already provide you with food and clothes, so it’s best to get an allowance ONLY if you help out. You’re still young, so I’m sure they’ll be open-minded.

Answer #3

I worked as a baby sitter at 14. thats the only job I could get.

Answer #4


Answer #5

In PA some places hire at 15 but mostly 16. You can ask around places and see how old you have to be. I’m 15 and need a job but I have to wait until I’m 16 because I don’t want to work in a fast food place.
