23. In some countries, teenagers have jobs while they are still students.

In some countries, teenagers have jobs while they are still students. Do you think this is a good idea? Support your opinion by using specific reasons and details.


Yes.
teenager 14 - 16 are old enough to work and it is not against most of the labor law. normally full-time student work part-time to earn extra pocket money but there are more to it. some argue that the teenage should focus on school work. If the objective of the school work is to prepare for the life challenges ahead, then part-time job is also part of the learning process in preparing. In fact, part-time job put into practice what the students have learned in school.
Personal example.

learn to work with others - social skill cannot be taught in school, prepare for life
learn problem solving skill using what they learned from school - math and physics, language skill.
learn discipline and time management - helpful in school work and later in work
