My 13 year old difficult child worked taking tickets at the fair, helping a gymnastic company last year. difficult child is very motivated by money. She worked so well last year that they asked her to work again this year, though she isn't affiliated with the gymnastics school any longer. She worked two 10 hour days and then she worked a 5-10. Another group saw her working so hard they asked her if she would come and work for them today 1-10 pm. They told her to bring a book and a chair, she's have some free time. She is so excited because she is saving money for a laptop. I am so proud of her and quite frankly pretty shocked that she is working so well. She has cried to me a couple of times about how sore she was. I was supportive and told her she could do it, so I did the good mommy thing. I was very worried that she would not be able to keep her mouth quiet and get herself fired. She did tell me that there were some rude people at the fair and she really had to work hard not to say something to them!!!!!!!I am so happy that she got it, she actually got it. Don't curse or tell the people off and you can keep the job. In my book this is a reason to celebrate. Just wanted to share a great difficult child moment!!!!
