Why Your Teen Needs a Summer Job

You CAN have a great relationship with your child!

Today’s episode is all about a new trend I’m seeing with some of the tweens and teens in my office – and it’s actually a positive thing, which is why I want to share it with you.

The pandemic has caused a lot of our young people to struggle emotionally, physically, academically, and spiritually, and the trend I’m going to talk to you about today is something that will reverse some of those negative effects of the isolation of the past 2 years.

I believe that this hot hiring market provides the perfect opportunity for teens to not only avoid the summertime slump (you know, that weird time where teens sleep all day and stay up all night on screens and you never see them for the fun family stuff!) but to really increase their self-esteem, confidence, and maturity too.

I want to share with you the reasons why it’s so important for your teen to get a job this summer and how to encourage them to get that job if they appear to be a little unwilling. But the important thing is that you have to start NOW.

If you wait for summer to get here, then all the good jobs will be taken and all that opportunity for personal growth will be gone with it.
