    daughter is just 16 and has had a job about 10 months, little guy is only 7 and would happily pay him to leave the house for 12 hours a day

    When I was in my second year of uni I think working helped to motivate me but during my a levels working evenings made getting schoolwork done almost impossible... tough one, not sure what I will do when my son is that age!

    it was our lads 6th form induction night this week & this was one of the subjects bought up, they said the students that had part-time jobs had worst results then those that just studied. But saying that we arnt able to get EMA which has really ****** me off :x but thats another story. Anyhoo my son at the mo is looking for a part time job to fund a scooter he wants to buy, we will help him some of the way but the money tree is a bit bare at the mo ! But part time jobs seem to be vary hard to come by.

    lol how is she finding it? I started work when i was 15 at sainsburys! … lol how is she finding it? I started work when i was 15 at sainsburys! just £5.15/hr :w00t: robbery!



    shes fine, she work 9 till 4 on a saturday, would not be happy about her working all weekend or evening, this is her final year and she needs to study for her exams and i think the same when they go onto college really, stdying is important and time is needed for that

    sort of thing my lad & us would be happy for him to do, if you dont mind me asking what does she do & how did she find the job, most of the big stores, PC world ( where he did his work experience) B&Q, sainsburys all have to be done online & at the mo here there isnt any.

    so if you had a little more money to spare would you want her to study … so if you had a little more money to spare would you want her to study more and you supplement her spending money? if she didn't benefit from working in other ways eg lack of confidence/social skills ect



    she has always been very confident etc,etc and if i had the money i would love to able to give her more, im not really sure one day a week working will have an impact on her exams, well her predicted grades havent changed and had no reports to show me otherwise

    she works in an indoor market, there really not supposed to employ them till they are 16, but bend the rules a little, she was only 15 when she started and she gets £4 an hour, she loves it, she loves the staffm the customers, she has been talking about trying to get into a clothes shop or something but they tend to only take on when you have left school

    ahh that's good. I dont think my grades suffered at all either back then. … ahh that's good. I dont think my grades suffered at all either back then. college was a bit different as the study jumps quite a lot and it is much more intense even more so than uni.... i guess if anything i'll encourage my child to get a job at uni and not before...



    when she finishes school and goes on to college i think she will still only work one full day a week, i dont want her do evenings as well, as i think it is important to have enough hours for everything, her brother also takes alot of her time up

    hmmm tough one that, on the one hand if we had the money we'd prefer him to study rather then work, but then having a part time job would give him a taste of the "outside world". But I think we would go more with helping him out money wise. He's very good with money so there would be no worries about him wasting it.

    Good luck with that! On the bright side if you go to uni the first year is way easier than A levels so it isn't all uphill! x
