SAT Prep in Dr. Phillips, Florida

03/02/2015
 If you are currently parenting a teenager, then you may be considering allowing your teen to get a job while he or she is still in high school. This is of course, up to you as the parent. If you are currently debating whether or not to do so, remember that there are definite benefits to this, which should be considered. The Tutoring Center in Orlando would like to share with you today, some of those benefits to help aid you in your decision.

Preparing Your Teen for a Job:

  • Be sure to talk with your teen about what the new job will entail
  • Be clear about your expectations for your teen, including grades and chores, while he or she is working

Precautions for Allowing Your Teen to Work:

  • If your teen is already having trouble with academics, you may want to consider ensuring he or she improves in those areas prior to allowing your child to work
  • Likewise, if your teen is doing well in school, but you begin to notice a slip in grades as a result of his or her work schedule either consider seeing if the work hours can be reduced or eliminated altogether

Keep the Possibilities in Mind:

As your teen begins to work, remember the possible advantages that this job will provide him or her
  • your teen will begin building his or her resume early
  • you can expect that your teen will become more aware of how to manage his or her time, given these new responsibilities
  • as your teen will be making his or her own money, you will likely also begin to see a greater understanding of finances and money management
Whether you decide to allow your teen to work or not, you may discover that he or she could benefit from some extra assistance in a certain subject area. For that, The Tutoring Center has got you covered. Likewise, you will do well to remember that this is around the time your teen is going to need to begin studying for the SAT and other college entrance exams.
