Chalk Talk: Balancing School and a Part Time Job
As students enter high school, the idea of a part time job may come to mind or even in your child’s mind. Many students have one, whether it is baby-sitting, mowing lawns on the weekend, or working at an ice cream shop. However, school responsibilities (such as sports, academics, other extra-curricular activities), work AND family or social life, students eventually face a challenge of managing all. Parents may face that challenge too – seeing their child running from one activity to another or staying up late to finish homework. If a job is a topic of discussion for you and your child, be sure that your student is ready for it. Look at all they have going on at that moment – how are their grades? What activities at school are they involved in? How busy is their social life? How busy is the family? Is all of this manageable for your child as well as you? Discuss the importance of work with your child but at the same time, emphasize school as most important. Allow your child to have the work experience if they want and if you want them to. Just as with anything else, no one knows unless they try. The key is making the experience manageable yet not overwhelming for everyone.
