Here is a short list of jobs which your daughter(s) can create to generate income: 1. Learn calligraphy so that you can provide handwritten invitations and thank you notes to prospective wedding parties, birthday celebrations, etc. Seek out clients through wedding planners at nearby churches and temples. A starter calligraphy kit usually runs around $20 and anyone can easily pick up this skill. The going rate is usually $1 per hand addressed item. 2. Become a "poser" who assists wedding photographers in setting and arranging various individuals in group and single photographic positions. "Posers" carry around a sketch book of various sitting and standing poses which consists of onion skin overlays of various wedding pictures bound in albums. Again, contact local wedding photographers and wedding planners, accordingly. The hourly pay is around $10-$12 per hour and you are often invited to attend all dining activities. 3. Seek from your neighbors a gardner position which involves planting, weed removal, plant/tree trimming, light brush clearance. You will be using the neighbor's equipment and tools. Again, do not represent yourself as a lawn mower since there are any number of safety issues involved. A door-to-door solicitation of surrounding neighbors is required and you can charge between $6 to $9 per hour. 4. Offer policing/removal or clearance of trash services to surrounding neighbors which involve trash pickup within nearby residential area. Limit the extent of pickup to small areas and be aware that there are no hazardous terrain or elements involved in this process. Again, a door-to-door solicitation of neighbors is in order. You can charge between $6.75 to $7.50 per hour. 5. Acquire a set of window cleaning tools [a bucket, liquid window cleaner, sponge, squeegee, handle with an extension and a small step ladder] and solicit local businesses for your window cleaning services. However, be careful to limit the height of the window cleaning to no higher than one story. Charge $1 per window panel. 6. Become a proxy/stand-in for neighbors to allow delivery of goods and packages to your home/apartment. Acquire the authority to sign any receipt of incoming packages as an accepting neighbor. Charge $1 per each package handled by you. 7. Consider becoming a restaurant-cafe customer liaison by using your cell phone at restaurants-cafes to coordinate with the hostess to keep track of waiting customers. Whenever there's a very long period of time to activate a waiting list, you want to offer the restaurant your services so that customers do not have to stand around for any lengthy period of time. And when their name/assigned number comes up; you can call the upcoming customer's cell phone to tell them that they can return to the restaurant and be served. The call back fee is usually around $0.50 cents on a per head basis. For example, a couple would be charged $1.00 while children under 6 would not be charged. Placement of a plaque which outlines your fee schedule near the hostess station is sufficient to garner attention of prospective customers who will value your services since they can do other activities outside of the restaurant -- often beyond the range of any inhouse paging system. You realize that everyone has a cellphone and why not take advantage of the connectivity to make the diner's experience worthwhile. The restaurant will also appreciate the added service you are providing as a customer liaison. 8. Why not become a paid feeder servicing the disabled at nearby nursing, convalescent, assisted living/care centers and hospitals. It involves feeding food to patients who are unable to feed themselves. The starting rate is $8.00 per hour. The only downside is that one has to take precautions to wash one's hands after each feeding. A posting of your services [by a business card or flyer] on a reviewable bulletin board would be enough to generate customers. The paid feeder position is one of the fastest growing occupation at this time. Good luck!

Abbigail Originally Answered: Why are 18-24 year olds especially 18-20 year olds considered Adults?
At 18 in any state in the US a child can leave home and some can be kicked out. (some states the age is lower) So by 18 ready or not, a person is considered an adult because if they have not bothered to learn how to take care of themselves by then, it could be too late. Adult mean that the person is now able to take on the required responsibilities of work, paying taxes and being a citizen with obligations to the community. Many older persons never make any of those commitments. In some cultures the age of being grown is much younger. Also there is no magic switch at any age that makes a person mature or not.

For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/awLhn Minors 14-17 years old may lawfully do a variety of jobs. Minors between 9 and 14 can work under only very limited circumstances. The positions minors can hold, the duties they may perform, and the hours they may work vary depending on their ages. Employers are required by law to verify the age of the minors they hire. The type of job a minor may have depends on how old the minor is. A Minor who are at least 16 may sell products door to door in residential areas. Fourteen and 15-year olds can also perform various kinds of work. In addition to the work that may not be performed by16 or 17 year-olds, 14 or 15-year-olds may not work at breweries, wineries, cold storage plants, foundries, railroad or grain elevators, and may not sell door-to-door. Even though a minor may be working in a grocery store, restaurant, or some other place where their employment is lawful, there are certain duties they may not perform. The prohibited job duties generally relate to the use or exposure to power-driven machinery. For example, if you work at a gas station, you may not use pits, racks, or lifting apparatuses, or tire inflation devices. Minors younger than 14 are even more restricted in the jobs they may hold. Minors at least 9 years old but under 13 may pick berries and beans during the summer. The number of hours a minor may work depends on how old the minor is. Minors aged 14 and 15 may, during the weeks that school is in session, work up to 3 hours a day on school days and 8 hours a day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, up to 18 hours a week. They may not work during any hour that school is in session. During the school year, 14 and 15-year-olds may not work earlier than 7 a.m. or later than 7 p.m. When school is out, 14 and 15 year-olds may work between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. from June 1 to Labor Day, and Christmas and spring breaks. Sixteen or 17 year-olds, may work up to 44 hours in a week and the hours are not restricted. Regardless of your age, your employer must pay you the minimum wage and time and one-half for all work done over 40 hours in one week. Your employer may not make deductions from your pay for breakage or loss you may have caused. If you are earning minimum wage, your employer may not deduct for the cost of uniforms, tools, or maintenance. If you are scheduled to work and show up, your employer must pay you for at least one-half of your scheduled shift even if no work is available. All other wage laws that apply to adult workers apply to you as well, including the requirements that employers set and maintain a regular payday, provide you with a statement of all deductions from your wages on each payday, and, when your job ends, pay you within the time frames provided by law. Your employer is required to provide you with a sanitary and safe work area, with adequate lighting, ventilation, restrooms and toilets. Your employer cannot allow you to lift any weight that is too heavy for you. If you work for your parents or for your legal guardians, different laws may apply. Parents still must pay their children at least the minimum wage and the parents are required to comply with other record keeping obligations.

Jamin Originally Answered: What are 14's year olds (year 9-grade 8) supposed to know in math?
I'm in grade 8 right now and here's a list of units we're supposed to know by the end of the school year: -Numbers- so like ratios, rates, multiplying/dividing fractions, multiplication and division of integers. - Patterns and relations: solve problems concretely, pictorially, and symbolically using linear equations, and then also graph and analyze 2 variable relations. -Space and Shape- Pythagorean theorem, develop and apply formulas for determining the volume of right rectangular prisms, right triangular prisms and right cylinders, congruence of polygons. -Statistics and Probability- critique ways in which data is presented in circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs, and solve problems involving the probability of independent events . Haha sorry this is a lot of stuff. Good luck!!
