How to make money over the summer? I'm too young for a job. - May 26th 2012, 07:40 PM

Hi!
So I don't want to give out my age, but I want to be able to make money over this summer, but I'm too young to work somewhere. Any tips? I don't want to babysit (it would bug the hell out of my anxiety) or mow lawns, and i don't think I'd be able to do dog walking. Any ideas?
I can make jewelry and I play the flute, I'd that can contribute to anything.
My parents wouldn't allow me to do a garage sale or sell on websites, so that's out of the question.
Thanks!

If you're vetoing babysitting and yard work, you're left with is gardening (like watering) and cat/dog sitting for neighbors on vacation, and perhaps something else -shrugs-

Well i'm not too young for a job over the summer, my parents prefer that I don't have one (weird right). And babysitting is like a zero for me too, dog sitting however isn't as hard as it seems but if you're against that why not see if your parents would pay you to do jobs around the house that you normally wouldn't do? That's what my parents do

Good luck!

There are lots of things you can do - you could go into town and play the flute and see if people will drop money into the case for your flute (you could just tell your parents you're going into town ) cat sitting/pet sitting, cleaning, doing shopping for elderly residents in your neighbour-hood , or gardening,

I really like the idea of you playing the flute with an hat or container near by. Youll be surprised how much money you can make and how much people will drop, esp in tourist areas.

Stop reading at the end of this sentence if you are currently below the doli incapax age in your jurisdiction (as to what that might be, assume it is fourteen).

I don't know about the people above me, but where I live, you'd need a busking license to play the flute in public and accept money from those who walk by. Playing the flute by itself without the money is hardly considered busking, but nevertheless, you're out to get money. Be sure to check busking license laws (if any) for where you live before attempting to do so.

As for my statement at the top of this reply, you could completely ignore what I have said in the previous paragraph and do it anyway; police will not fine someone below the doli incapax age for a petty crime like busking without a busking license. It would be ridiculous, and if at all, you'd get a warning because of your age. That being said, I am not condoning illegal behaviour, and I am not giving advice on how to do so.


Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.

I'm being kicked out to be a waitress at my step-dads cafe :/ oh, well... it'll get me some money I can only go when I'm sixteen though, because no other places in my area will take me if I'm under 16.

@QuantumModulus Sadly not. I'm very weak in that subject and any type of science.

Are there any subjects you are particularly good at (or even hobbies that you've become skilled at)? I have an adult friend who charges $35/hour for tutoring, but since you're younger, you may be able to offer tutoring for significantly less. Do you have any friends who have younger siblings? How about children in your neighborhood who are younger than you are? One possibility would be to meet with as many parents as you can and offer to tutor their children over the summer months. You'll have to work hard to sell the idea to them, though. For example, if you're good at reading and writing, and you know someone who has a young child that's just beginning to learn all of this, you can go to their parents and emphasize how important it is to continue practicing these skills over the summer (otherwise, they'll be rusty when they go back to school in the fall). Tell them that you are looking for tutoring experience and would love to help their child for a small fee each week (either meeting once a week or Monday - Friday). If they seem uncertain about the idea, offer to teach for a discounted fee for the first week, and discuss the matter with them again after a week has passed. Even if it doesn't work out for the entire summer, you can ask those parents if they would be willing to serve as references for whenever you meet with future potential clients.
