What would you like to do?
Different states and countries have different child labor laws, but in most Western countries you must be at least 14 years of age to hold most "regular" jobs.
Some jobs you may be able to do are:
Some jobs you may be able to do are:
- Baby watching, where you entertain the child to give parents the opportunity to get tasks done around the house (cleaning, taxes, or anything else) that they have a rough time taking care of while dealing with a child
- Walking dogs or pet sitting
- Lawn care, e.g. mowing lawns or raking leaves (a lot of people despise even having to water their lawns.
- Going to the shops for the elderly
- Cleaning jobs for friends, family, and neighbors, such as tidying garages or washing windows.
- Car washing, i.e. cleaning cars, vans, lorries, etc
- Paper rounds/routes
- Selling household items, i.e. yard or garage sales
- If you have any outstanding skills, then definitely put them to work. For example, if you play an instrument well, give music lessons. If you're really good at Math, Science, English, or any other school subject, then tutor kids of a lower grade level. If you're really good at building websites, then offer your services to new businesses (As one FAQ Farmer attests, "I built a website for a local golf course and made big bucks when I was twelve, and HTML is really simple to learn.")
- If you're the arts-and-crafts type, then find a craft you really enjoy making, and then sell them. Anything from making greeting cards (in which case, take advantage of the season: make Christmas cards at Christmas, Valentine Cards at Valentine's Day, etc), to making pillows, potholders, jewelry, and everything in between. People really love handmade things.
- Sell lemonade
- Think about creative ideas, such as cooking for seniors, or opening a mini arcade.
- Volunteer community service, such as helping the elderly.
- Ask around at local businesses. For example, sweeping up hair in a hair salon or picking up phones in a shop.
- Caddy at a golf course
- If you are really good at doing hair like scalp braiding or twisties or something you could have people pay you to do their hair
- Do yourself a favor. Pay attention to school. You have more then plenty of time to work.

Answer While your work ethic is admirable it is tough to get a job as a 12 year old... mainly because of labor laws. Most states require that you be atleast 14 y…ears old before you can legally work, and even then many require that you obtain a work permit (usually very easy to do) and your hours of work are usually limited at that age as well. HOwever, having said that, I have always had a job... from the ripe old age of 12 myself (I am now 37 and work as a Registered Nurse). Of course, the fact that you need to be indoors limits you furthur as it takes out all the obvious things like paper route, lawn mowing, raking leaves (you would be amazed at the amount of money people are willing to pay to get their lawns mowed.. though it is hard work). If you have to be indoors, I think you might consider trying to find someone who needs help around the house. You may not make as much as a professional housekeeper but it would be a start. Also, consider being a mothers helper. While you are still a little young to join the babysitting crowd, a mothers helper looks out and cleans up after the kids while the mother is still home. Eventually, as you get a little older and moms get to know you, they may feel comfortable leaving the kids with you while they runs errands. Lastly, if you do a good job with the limited options you have now, you will have some good references when you are old enough to get the kind of job you are looking for.
These are some of the high paid jobs. Doctor (Surgical) earns between 350, 000 - 650, 000 bucks/p year Normal Doctor earns between 250, 000 - 400, 000 bucks/p year Lawye…r earns between 300, 000 - 550, 000 bucks/p year Architect earns between 250, 000 - 450, 000 bucks/p year High School/ Univercity lecturer earns about 250 - 500 bucks/p hour Other medium paid jobs are Nurse Banker Carpenter Artist Plz feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!

The only jobs I know that a 9 year old can do are yard sales, helping neighbours ect. There's not much a kid can do to earn money.

nothing your to young
A 13- year- old is not supposed to get a job... The limit is 14... But you could get minor jobs like babysitting, sweeping hair for hair salon, or even working at a family bus…iness.
yes its a good level on the other hand 4a is not as good
Being good managers will help you get good pay.
paper round baby sitter dog walker
Maybe you could try babysitting its easy and is always needed cause parents always need date nights. If that's not your style you could make a lemonade stand, do chores, yard …sell, wash cars, or maybe just mow yards. these are all great hope there helpful
You can: 1. babysit 2. run a lemonade stand 3. pet-sit 4. sell any toys you don't want anymore 5. mow lawns 6. do chores 7. help parents 8. help old people cro…ss the road 9. sell candy 10. sell any old stuff you don't what (example: CDs and board games etc.) 11. sell books 12. get a paper route 13. do surveys (thirteen and up only online) 14. Rake leaves 15. shovel snow
by applying for one.. but depending on what state you live in depends on how old you have to be to get a job. Or you could go door to door and ask people if they want their …lawn mowed, their flowers weeded, their car washed, their leaves raked, their driveway shoveled, etc How much money do you need when you are 10?
Yes this is an alright grade but your son should soon start working towards a Level 6B-6A in future exams.
When I was your age I worked in a stable for 6 summers. It was the most memorable part of my youth! For me, I worked not only cleaning and caring for horses, but I lived in …the stable, in a tiny little room at a Mountain resort in North Carolina. During the day I acted as a 'guide' leading tourists from the resort on horses along the base of the mountains. I earned very little each week for my actual work...as I recall at the time it was around £25 but I made a small fortune in gratuities from the guests! There was another facet to the 'job' that was what any young teenager could only describe as awsome! In addition to the guide and stable boy job, the facility also hosted a girl's riding school - lead by a remarkable lady. The girls ranged in age from 12-16 and I can only describe the time I spent there as my 'awakening' to life!! I was not only bombarded by countless girls, who came for two-week intervals, but on occasion I was even 'bombarded' by their mothers who stayed at the resort. Most the time the girls arrived alone to stay at the camp, but it was just occasionally that their parents came as well, but the parents remained in the resort whilst the girls stayed in cabins just slightly up the hill from the stable. By the time I turned sixteen I lost count over the number of crushes the girls had over me and the number of times I ...er...um...feel in love....Now I think it was mostly just prickly heat! But there was nothing like taking my teen girlfriends out for a Sunday afternoon picnic ride on my horses, spreading a blanket out on a bedding of fresh forest pine, along a babbling brook and enjoying the excitement of our youth. The work is hard, but if you're diligent you can do it easily. I'd recommend that you present yourself to a stable owner who specialises in boarding and teaching English riding rather than Western Saddle riding. Be confident. Even consider offering to work for the first week for free just to show your confidence and capability. The potential boss will be impressed. Demonstrate your love for the horses and they will demonstrate their love for you. Keep the stalls clean - this means forking out manure several times and day and a regular course of removing the wet base from beneath. I grew up with shavings over straw and it was jolly hard work keeping the stalls clean. Plus show that you have a good knowledge of how to use a curry brush. I always used a wire brush on my horses manes and tails, which give them a beautiful shine. And most of all - Be gentle! Always gentle. Speak Gentle. Be a gentleman and you will ALWAYS be respected; both by the horses and the girls!
