What can a teen do to make money when they are still too young to actually have a "real" job?

The usual I'd say...babysitting, mowing lawns, pet sitting. I can't think of anything else right off hand.

I can't remember..is KR 14 yet? If so she can work at McDonald's. We had several 14 year old's working there. They both can advertise to help do odd jobs. Heck I would hire them both just to go grocery shopping with me to keep the kids occupied!

I started working ar 12. I thought it was too young, but my parents were insistant that I start working. If KR wants to work, I would let her, but if she does not I wouldn't push her.

I took on my first full time job the summer I was 14. I cut down to part time when school started back up and worked that until I turned 16 and quit school to work full time again. (I'm sure that makes you want your kids to work young huh?)
Before that, I had done a lot of babysitting and once even took on a before school job of feeding horses and cleaning out/feeding the birds in a small aviary.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

How about working at a Parks & Recreation department? They hire teenagers for the summer to do various things like work in concession stands and keep score.

We are going to try some babysitting .. for Chase .. Kirstie-Raie does not want to watch kids. And Chase is going to wash my van once a week and do some lawn care too.

But Kirstie-Raie went to Chic-Fil-A nd McD's and they said she had to be 15 in Georgia

I dunno

How about summer camps? I guess that's like watching kids but they would be organized and doing lots of different activities.
