As I sat in the van waiting for her the first time I could empathize with how nervous she was. I thought about how important the act of trying to find a job in person is to character building. It takes lots of confidence and courage to do this. Many teens don’t know how to shake an adult’s hand and strike up a conversation. These are skills that are important for a lifetime. I am proud of her for doing it. She really doesn’t have a choice if she wants a car, she has to buy it, pay for insurance, and pay for her gas. We will not provide those things for her. This practice is another element of character building.
If you know of any places who are hiring right now please let me know. She doesn’t want to work in the food industry, as a lifeguard, or babysitting. Thanks, for your help!
