YOUNG CHILDREN CAN ALSO EARN MONEY
Money is a tool. What you do with it shows your character. Children should earn money, and they can, by getting friends to raise a car wash in the neighborhood, go on errands and help the elderly or they could even house sit. My opinion is that young children can also earn money.
Firstly, they can get some friends to raise a car wash in the neighborhood. When neighbors are driving past with their dirty cars, you can stop them and say that you just made a new car wash and plead with them to patronize you. Some may patronize you and some may not. If they don’t patronize you, do not be discouraged because there will still be others and before you know it, you will end up earning a lot of money, but share the money equally between you and your friends because of their help.
You can also go on errands and help the elderly. Adults are normally busy and they have lots of work to do, so you can ask for permission to go to your neighbor’s house for security purposes, if they agree, go to their house and ask your neighbor for what you can do to help him or her and then you start earning money.
Finally,you can house sit, you can still ask for permission to go to your neighbor’s house from your parents or a trusted adult and if they agree, go to the neighbor’s house. If your neighbor is around, ask your neighbor whether you can house sit the house while he or she is out. If they agree, when they are gone, you start house sitting by sweeping, washing the dishes, mopping the floor and dusting everywhere. You will see when your neighbors come back; they will see their house clean and sparkling. They will call other neighbors that might be interested and tell them about your business and then you start getting paid for house sitting.
Young children should earn money. They can raise a car wash with some friends, go on errands and help the elderly or house sit.
