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:
  • Babysitting
  • 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.
