Default Did your parents make you get a job at 14?

I was just wondering if anyone’s parents made them get jobs at a young age to develop discipline, or for other reasons. I specifically put age fourteen because that’s the earliest that I recall a minor can work.

I didn’t have a job until eighteen because I wanted to work later shifts, and I didn’t want to work while being in school.

Did your parents let you work if you wanted a job for money? Did you want to work or did your parents suggest you to work? How was your first job experience like if you had worked as a fourteen year old?

I started working at my dads company beside school when I turned 15. That was because I wanted it. No pressure, Well no pressure, but he could see some potential so it was his idea.

I feel like unless it's a family business, it'd be illegal for a 14 year old to have a job in most parts of the developed world. Nonetheless, my parent's aren't forcing me to get a job, we haven't even discussed it.

Summer jobs have been brought up, sure, but my parents never made me work. I get a little something if I put some extra effort to my chores, or do some without being asked to.

It's good to have faith in the Lord, but it's also important to use your head once in a while.

I'm not 14 yet and certainly won't be forced to work when I am, but I do do odd jobs like mowing the lawn or washing the car for some extra cash.

I have done things like babysit...and have done some clerical work for my mom, but that's about it.
