Should thirteen-year-old children be able to have jobs?

  • Thirteen year olds should have jobs!

    Thirteen year olds need jobs because they need money. I know first hand that my mom HATES IT when I ask for money. The only way to get it is to babysit. The problem is we have school, homework, and family responsibilities. Then you have the weekend and there is nothing to do and no where to go. Thirteen year olds need jobs so that we can make money and still have time for school work and family responsibilities.

  • Kids need money,( Not from their parents

    I think that 13 year old should be able to have jobs because they should be able to get things they want without having to ask their parents for money. If a teen want to go to the movies and their parents say they have to work for it, it's not easy because the only job 13 year olds can get is baby sitting and that all relies on what days he/she can baby sit!

  • Yes they should because people think that thirteen year olds know no responsibity.

    With jobs the thirteen year old population would learn the responsibility they need for everyday life. They would also learn how the real world works and how to cope with it, which would give them more knowledge to know what to do with their money when they earn it. Also the young teens could help with their family rent or help their family when they need it most. But, they would also have a bit of spending money to use on whatever they desire as long as they stay in the lines of what they can afford and hang out with their friends while they're out of the house.

  • We need jobs

    I think that a thirteen year old should have a job because we need some mpney to start buying stuff that we need. Also to start helping are family with bills and stuff. It will also give us a little pocket money to go out and spend when we go with friends.

  • Yes they Should

    But there should be regulations on the type of work a thirteen year old can do. Like they can't drive a delivery truck, can't do a lot of a construction work, that type of stuff. It needs to be regulated, but allowed. Many 13 year olds are smart enough to stack cans in a local grocery store or something like that.

  • 13 year old kids should't have jobs

    I say no because they have to focus in school because if they don't their life will be roughin and they will and there mom or mommy or dad or daddy can pick out there job to make sure it safe and they need safety and the might need a new job

  • I agree because

    Kids need to learn how to work, without their parents help, therefore learning how to be independent and learning responsibility. Kids also need to learn what's it like in the real life, to work and go through hard labor. That is why I believe 13 year olds should be able to work

  • They should be able to work.

    Sometimes people just need there kids to work because parents already spend there money for bills and car insurance, so the teens should be able to use there money for thier own clothes and to save up for college, or they can save some money for when they are in need for money.

  • We do not need jobs

    Having a job at age thirteen is a very bad idea. They would increase USA's unemployment rate by a couple 1000. There are already 1.4 million Americans that don't have jobs and that does not need to be any higher. Also, many researches conducted have shown that the student's grade would decrease down to about C. This happens as a result of no time to study and hardly anytime to sleep which are both caused by the student's urge to earn more money. Yes, having some extra money is nice but to fail school and take away many jobs from Americans is definitely not worth the trade.

  • We don't need jobs!

    We don't need jobs because we cant drive ourselves to work everyday and we cant rely on others because that's not their job! We are still kids and don't have bills to pay, that's not our job we need to live when were young and have fun and play activities while we still can. Also if we take jobs now we are possibly taking jobs away from other people who really need them and need that money to keep living everyday. We should be focusing on school and giving that our all because that's what is the most important at our age so we can succeed in the future and in our school work.
