How should an entitled teen with their entire life ahead of them spend their summer other than eating at home and slowly becoming a burden in the process?
Well, a summer job can help minimize those issues and give your teens their first taste of reality (in small doses) that only adds character.
Where does one begin guiding a teenager at an age whereas the least on their mind is physical activity (even if money is involved.) Here’s a few of the best suggestions that consider the fact that the average age of a fast food employee is 28 and rising.
The Mall – The mall is always a great place for teens to work as they are surrounded by things they can’t afford to realize the true concept of money. Plus, malls need someone to apprehend young shoplifters from stealing ten dollars worth of junk products (that adults wouldn’t want to pay for either.) This being due to the fact that most teens at this age can segregate items they would pay for with their own money or their parent’s money. This job also works for the teen’s social life due to the fact most teens consider being a mallrat a hobby (so they’re at the mall for a reason.)
Ice Cream Shack – When it comes to summer jobs I highly doubt anyone would get ice cream in a bad mood. The stress level that comes with the occupation is quite possibly none as the only stress that could occur regarding ice cream being which favors contain peanuts or the difference between sherbet and ice cream. The shrieking kids for an immediate sugar high may be an issue (but nothing a pair of earplugs couldn’t take care of).
Amusement Park – An amusement park is an excellent choice because 300 teens will be outside dealing with families and they may understand what you (the adult) went through when it came to making their children’s inconsistent temper positive. The best choice would be an amusement park that has one permanent location as opposed to traveling with carnies (unless the idea of your teen coming back with a face tattoo doesn’t bother you at all.)
Lawncare, Babysitting, Dog Walking – Some of these jobs are very helpful for a teen to develop social skills when performing in the workplace with clients one-on-one. Some of their businesses may take off or even become something to put on their resume for references in the future.
