Almost every teenager wants employment, yet many of us are against it. I believe teenagers should have after-school jobs for a variety of reasons. First, having a son or a daughter that works can financially help the oldsters.
Finally, teenagers should have after-school jobs because it'll keep them faraway from trouble. Parents should realize that as long as their son or daughter wants an after-school job and it doesn't affect his or her performance at college, they ought to let their child have one.
Although an after-school job seems like a time-honored tradition, the number of teens who work has actually fallen in recent years. The decline within the teenage workforce could also be partially thanks to the problem many teens have finding work. Other teens could also be opting out of working while in high school because they're schedules are already overflowing. Between sports practices and long hours studying, there won't be much time left over to urge a part-time job.
