At Weeks End
Young folks today have many opportunities for part-time jobs at various public and private venues. My granddaughter in New Mexico, Olivia, is paid handsomely to watch after pet turtles of a couple who travel extensively.
I think it is good training for kids to suffer the responsibility of earning a buck, as long as they dont get carried away. They should temper working part time by realizing one day soon that will be an everyday occurence for years to come.
Theyre only kids once. Taking advantage is highly recommended by a fellow who has been around 75 years.
