difficult child wants to get a job. He has friends (girls) who work at fast food places at age 14. He is bugging me non stop. (in between his fears of dying and headaches and etc) Now, this freshman year has taken a toll on any activities. Hours of homework not just for a grade, for a credit. (wouldn't be hours if he actually DID it daily instead of waiting until the night before or the day after it is due) He also is a baseball fanatic. When baseball season starts he will be at practice most nights and 3 or more games a week. He seems to think he can get a job and what....just go when he feels like it? I think it would be good for him to see his own money and how to spend his own money. (maybe think twice about spending so much) But I have so many negatives about this. Number 1, school. Number 2-headaches. Do or did anyone have a job so young?
