MOD! Hey, I'm an animal lover and I have a ton of animals I take care of at my house. I have a bunny who had babies about 4 weeks ago. I know when I can sell them and seperate them from their mom but I was wondering how I could get the word out. Lucky me they are super cute and I live on main street. Thanks Smile Oh, and If you know anything about it, how can I question them to make sure they are ready for a commitment like that? Thnks



Hey babe. You can post an add in the paper "Adorable Bunnies to a Good Home" or something like that. there is also craigslist and putting signs on street poles. Good Luck!

ill be getting out of school soon, and i realy want to get a good summer job. i already have people i babysit for too. i really like the outdoors and stuff like that. i also like animals. so, do you have any suggestions for some good summer job ideas for a 12 year old? thanks alot in advance!!

hey girl,

it is definitely difficult to get a job at your age, so babysitting is definitely a great start.  I would suggest getting a lot of volunteer experience that may lead to jobs in the future--if you like outdoors, see if you can help out at a park or at summer events.  Gaining experience is definitely important for your future.  You can also try to make and sell things to friends and family if you are to your parents and see if they can help you in any way!

ok, so i will be geting out of school in june and i was thinking about getting a good summer job to make some money. im only 12 so i dont really think i can get an "actual" job, but i want a simple one. i already have people i can babysit for too. so, could you give me some good summer job ideas? i can pretty much get used to anything, and i really enjoy the outdoors and stuff like that. also, do you know if there are any places a 12 year old can sell artwork? because i really enjoy making art- and im pretty good at it, i am told. thanks so much in advance!!

hey girlie,

i'm glad you are interested in making the most out of your summer!  if you are interested in selling artwork, check and see if there are local music or summer festivals in your town where you can set up with booth with your parents.  Also, you can sell handmade things at a site called  You may need your parents to set up an account for you--but they can help you get started with everything.  It's a great place for selling things! Good luck, and I am glad you enjoy making art! I do too Smile

Im trying to find a summer job so I can save up money to go on a trip next spring but I can't find a place that would hire a 14 year old. I would babysit but everyone i know who needs a babysitter already has an older chind to look after the younger ones so i need to find a job fast help!

by afoster97 on 5/9/2011 10:19:09 PM


I want to babysit but I don't know how to get started. Also, I don't know if people would let me. I look a lot younger than I really am and it's not that I'm just not responsible...I totally am. I'm turning 13 at the end of the month and most people have older kids to take care of the younger or don't have younger ones at all. Please help!

Hey girlie. Talk with your parents first off. They may know people who need babysitters. Also, check with other family and your neighbors. Word of mouth is the best! Good luck.

MOD MOD MOD!!! Help! I'm 13 (turning 14 in September) and I really want to get a job this summer. However, I'm an only child, straight-A student and very mature for my age and I think a job other than babysitting would be better for me. I'm Red Cross-certified and am good with kids, but I'm ready for an actual job. Is there anything I can do?



Hey chica! Most jobs, you have to be at least 16. I'd check around with your neighbors though and see if they have any odd jobs for you... like gardening, or dog walking! Smile

I just got a summer job but I am not sure if I should accept or not. I've been asked to babysit a 7 year old Monday to Friday from 7-4:30. I've done this type of part time work before. It seems pretty demanding, but I don't know...should I accept!?!?!?!

Hey girl,

It's up to you. Would you really love the money? Can you wake up that early? Are you going to want to do other things with your summer? Could you negotiate some vacation time so you aren't burned out by the end? Just carefully consider your goals for the summer and see if this job fits into that <3

I really want a job. (I'm turning 14 in June.) Problem is, everyone I know has a baby and/or dog sitter and/or a mother's helper, I'm not very patient with crafts, and I really don't want to be a dog walker- I already have two to take care of! I'm really good/patient with people, I am a good actress (I don't know if that matters or not, I thought I might throw it out there just in case), am a pretty good singer (I'v sang at Veteran's Day concerts in miliatary camps), am good with kids, and am a hard worker. Can you think of any paying jobs that would be right for me? I'd love it if you'd comment back!

Hey girl,  I'd suggest babysitting — it sounds like you have the skill set to be a lot of fun with kids and responsible.

Do you have any suggestions on a way for me to make money this summer? I'm 12 (I'll be 13 in Nov.). My parents pay me for babysitting my little sibs, but that's only $1 an hour and I kinda want some more money. Plz help!

ok well im in sort of a sticky situation. all my life ive wanted to b an actress, and ive totally got my heart set on acting. but i havent told my parents because im almost positive they wouldnt approve of it because they want me to become a doctor or something or that sort. i cant pursue my dream without them, but im also too scared to tell them. what do u think is the right thing to do here? should i just forget about my dream and focus on academics or try and become an actress? thx

Hey babe,

NEVER forget about your dream, but also remember that your parents are probably considering practical things to make sure you make the best choices for your future. Academics is extremely important! Approach your parents and let them know of your passion for acting. You should always feel able to talk to them and share your concerns/interests with them! But also tell them that you understand how important academics is, so you were hoping they could help you combine the two. I'll tell you right now - they're not going to be too fond of you dropping out of school to become a movie star. So, if you approach the subject in a mature way and show them your commitment to both acting and continuing your education, they'll be much more likely to help ya out <3

I'm 11 and I really want a job. I don't think that there's any job for me. Can you please give me examples of the stuff I could do. Here's what I'm good at.
Drawing,Books,Animals,Writing,People,Ideas,Words,Making Stuff
Well ty - Rachel



Hey chickadee! Since you're so young, you most likely can't get a real job. However, you can get one around your neighborhood! Maybe you could volunteer to walk dogs for your neighbors for some extra cash. Or, petsit for them of they go on vacay. You could even do off jobs... like weeding gardens, cleaning and carrying groceries Smile

It stinks though, you can't get a REAL job until your 16 where I live.

by Shayc on 4/7/2011 8:42:13 PM


I left a comment like a lot of the comments on this page a few days ago, but it never showed up. It wasn't gross or inappropriate, but it never showed up. It was only a little like the comments left, and so why didn't it show up?

Hey girlie. I'm not sure but we get a lot of comments every day, so it might have gotten lost in the mix! Sorry about that! Just ask your questions again!

Hi MOD!!!!!
I'm turning 16 in May. I want a job in the summer, but I have a few restrictions due to my busy schedule. I could only work in the afternoon (starting at 2 or 3 ish would be good) and I could only work 4 days/wk maximum (preferably 2 of those days are Sat and Sun). I prefer to work with people rather than alone in an office. I'm really good at selling products and am pretty patient. What type of jobs can I get?

Hey girlie,

You could do a ton of things! Most places are pretty flexible (and will probably give you less hours since it's your first time working there, which may actually work better with your schedule!). Try looking at places like:

- stores or kiosks in the mall

- a local pool (concession stand or ticket booth would be perf)

- a movie theater

- an ice cream shop

- a restaurant

~MOD~I just turned 13, and I was wondering if you think there are any paying jobs other than home businesses (a.k.a babysitting, dogwalking, etc.) that would hire me, since, you know, my age. I honestly am very responsible, and I have experience with kids and everything, and 4.167 gpa! Oh, and I live in California (do you think there are any laws about this?) I'd especially love working at the roller paldium!


Hey girl! Here are two links about making some money because 13 is pretty young, and I'm not sure how many businesses will hire at that age. Calling and asking though is definitely a good choice. At least you'll know and indicate to them that you want a job! hope this helps!

I'm 12 and i'm trying to earn money since i don't get allowances. I want to work at shops and also babysit. (Once i get my certificate) What job should i do??

Hey girlie,

Talk to your parents and see what is best for your situation.  See what is most convenient, because if you work at a store you may need a ride or may have to take public transportation.  Be safe...and good luck!

by ladyshen on 4/2/2011 11:47:31 PM


I have some neighbors who have three adopted daughters- I've never really talked to them, and neither has my mom. But babysitting is pretty much the only job I can do since I'm 12. How do I get to know them and tell them I'm available to babysit?

Hey girlie,

Just pay them a friendly visit--bring over some extra cookies that you baked or something...and introduced yourself!  Let them know you are available and trustworthy!

I really need a summer job. I'm 14 and was planning on training to be a lifeguard or junior lifeguard but I don't think I can because I'm joining the swimteam which literally only opens my Sunday up. Also, I can't find any places that would hire somebody my age. I only have a twin brother so I can't babysit him and my parent's friends' kids are at least in middle school. I really would like some advice on what I can do at 14. Also what are some suggestions for real jobs for my age. Thanks so much (:

hey! well you can't get a job because you're underage so your best shot is asking if your parents would pay you for chores. good luck!

But you forgot about transportation! I live out in the country and can't drive and my mom isn't willing to drive me to something everyday.

hey! do you have any friends with cars who'd be willing to help you out?

So i want to dye my hair the color of ariana grande's hair (its like a red velvet cupcake color) so i asked my dad and he said go for it, then i asked my mom and she said heck no. she doesnt want me to have that color hair for graduation and she pretty much said tht i dont have a say in what i look like. i really really want my hair that color but she said it would look really bad... please help me, what can i do to make her AT LEAST consider it?!?!? thanks!


Hey girlie! Try sitting her down and talking to her about why you want to dye your hair and how much it would mean to her if she would let you -- if push comes to shove, ask your dad to help you out, seeing as how he thinks you should go for it Smile

Would it be weird to ask a new family that moved in if they need it for me to babysit?(I have Red Cross training)
The boys are 8 and 10 and I don't know if that is a late age for me, only a few years older to be babysitting for.

Hey girlie! It all depends on your age, but -- with your mom joining you -- you should tell them that you are a babysitter and opened for business Smile

so it is like 100 degrees where i live! the school dress code doesnt let you wear short shorts, but every grl wears them tho. but like 1/2 of them get a dress cut (u have to wear ur PE shorts) only if the teachers catch u. i wear shorts as short as every1 else, but i have never gotten a dress cut. should i wear shorts and risk getting a dress cut (which isnt a big deal, u dont get in trouble, u just have to change into PE shorts) and not have to be too hot, or wear long shorts and be sorta hot?? like i said, pretty much every girl wears short shorts

Hey girlie! You shouldn't risk it -- simply wear longer shorts because either way, you'll end up in long shorts (i.e. PE shorts).
