As a teen, it can be difficult to find ways to make money. If mom and dad don’t give you an allowance, or they do, but it’s not “enough”, and if you are too young to get a job working fast food or daycare, here are a few ideas to help you bring in the change!
Probably one of the first “jobs” that many of us have is babysitting! It’s fun and easy and you don’t have to be 18 in order to do it. If you don’t drive yet, or don’t have a car, you can arrange to be dropped off by someone, or have the parents bring the child to your home. Check with the parents in your neighborhood within walking distance, they may agree to let you walk over and stay with the kids when they need to run errands. Or if you are still a bit young to be alone with kids, they may let you ride along and keep the baby entertained. You could charge $3-$5 an hour depending on your age and the circumstances.
