Is she right or wrong?

Back when I was in high school, I got my first job working the breakfast shift at a local restaurant. I either seated tables as a hostess or helped run the buffet line. It wasn’t glamorous, but several more odd and temp jobs followed until I graduated from college.

Now, considering how jam-packed my schedule was during that time, did my parents try and discourage me from working my part-time jobs? Absolutely not. It taught me how to not only manage my money and learn how to get out of bed and clock in for a job, but how to juggle my hours with school.

Through these smaller jobs, I slowly learned the meaning of earning that all-important dollar and most importantly, what responsibility feels like.

I thought it was a great lesson my parents taught me — the value of hard work — but, not everyone thinks this is such a good idea.

Why shouldn’t teens find part-time jobs?
