Punching the Clock


Mom, Dad, trying to empower your teen for a successful future? I’m gonna surprise you with one of the keys!

Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.

One of the biggest mistakes I see parents making today is keeping their kids too busy with after-school activities. They’ve got no time left for a part-time job! And kids who get their first job after high school can hardly cope with the simple disciplines.

Nothing will teach a teen about life and making a livelihood more than punching the clock for a few hours each week. Flippin’ burgers. Or scooping ice cream. An hourly wage will reinforce invaluable skills … like time-management, personal finance, and effective communication.

It doesn’t matter whether they need the money or not. Mom, Dad … let your teen get a job!
