Great Part-Time Jobs for Teens - YCH079
We don't only talk about what jobs kids can work at, but WHY you might want them to even have a job! There are lots of benefits to allowing your teens to work, not the least of which is this piece of research: studies have shown that teens who worked in the summer had greater job satisfaction and greater future earnings than those who didn’t. But there are also issues to keep your eyes open for as a parent. So no matter how you feel about "working teens" you'll find this episode engaging. Does your teen have a part-time job? Links mentioned in this episode: The “Super Skills” Moms Gain from Homeschooling - YCH Episode 054 (talks about how we acquire soft skills, which also apply to teens who work) How to Incorporate Life Skills Into Your Homeschooling - YCH Episode 022 (this episode wasn't specifically referred to, but definitely relates to the topic!) ~~ This podcast is listener-supported.
