With summer break just around the corner, a lot of kids are going to be staying at home without much to do. While there is nothing wrong with them just lounging around and enjoying themselves since they won’t get to do this much when they are older, they should still be encouraged to go out and do something productive in some way, shape or form. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that too much free time can be a bad thing, since it might lead to your kids taking part in some seedy activities out of boredom or perhaps curiosity.
The thing is, you can’t exactly have your kid work at a bank or a law firm because these jobs require professional qualifications. Suffice it to say that your kid needs an easier job that still pays well, and if they are up to it they should consider giving Stafford power washing a try. They can charge around a hundred dollars for a regular pressure washing gig, and it will take around two hours to complete which is all the work they need to do to feel satisfied.
More kids should start earning money, and it would be best if instead of wasting this money they saved it for their future. Investing in the stock market now will allow your kids to have some truly comfortable nest eggs by the time they are thirty, and they might not even need to save for retirement due to how much compound interest their savings will have generated once they finally reach the age at which they can retire.
