WAYS TO MAKE MONEY FAST AS A KID OR TEENAGER. From: DavidStilesBlog.com

Are you a kid/teenager looking to make some money, quick? Do you have kids that are always hounding you for $20 to go to the mall or the movies? Well, here is a list of just some of the jobs they could do to make money. Some, you could have $20 bucks in your hand within 2 hours, others, may take a while, but be more permanent, such as a review website of your favorite kid products or Youtube channel where you make vines or funny stuff or whatever.

In a study done by the journal, Science, it was found that kids/teens that worked 25 hours a week, at least during summer months off school, were significantly less likely to get into trouble with things like: gangs, injuries, violence (down 43%), robberies, fighting and general crime. If they children aren't available to do the crime or whatever, they are safe and earning some money mowing someone's lawn or whatever their chosen chore is.

Not only does having a light job keep kids out of trouble, but instills a sense of responsibility and pride, plus, on the side they have their own money, but YOU as a parent should watch what they spend it on. Nobody's kid would buy/use drugs, right? Not your little angel! Keep track, we live in bad times and since they're children, they don't always make the best decisions (neither do a lot of adults I know).

I know I had some sort of part-time job since I was 12. It was always my choice to start or stop working, but I loved the sense of duty and a fat wallet! Course, as a 12 and 13 year old, most of my money was spent on firecrackers and candy with the occasional movie. Having a job did keep me out of trouble and I learned the sense of duty, to be on time, and not disappoint those who depended on me. I mowed lawns a lot as I got into my later teen years. Seemed a simple job and I did it well and still remember 35 years later the feeling of collecting $5 for a well-mowed lawn and the smell of the freshly cut grass.

12 WAYS TO MAKE MONEY AS A KID OR TEENAGER (see job search site at end of list)

DOG WALKER: This can be very rewarding and gets you contacts to parlay of the other jobs below from your contacts that you work for walking their dogs. Easy to do. Make sure you are very good to the dogs. They are 'babies' to their 'parents' (their owners). Cut them a deal if you walk more than 1 of their dogs. Like instead of $3.00 x 2, make it $5.00 for 2 dogs owned by the same person. Be sure to bring plastic bags with you to clean up their poop, it's your responsibility.

BABYSITTER: Super good experience for you because almost everyone becomes a parent sometime. What you charge per hour or per job will vary on how old the kid is (will you have to change poopy diapers?), how many kids you watch and for how long. When your 12 (check on state laws) you can usually start sitting. It's great money and you get to raid their fridge! LOL.

SELL STUFF AT SCHOOL: It's been a long time since I was in school, but I used to sell various crafts like candles I made, popular stickers and various items. I looked online and candy seems to be a pretty good one to sell and make fast money, especially Ring Pops and individually wrapped bubblegum, but the 'candy of the year' will always be changing. Keep up with the trends. Check with school rules on when, where and if you can have your own little side job going on or not before you invest. The markups can be as much as 10x what you paid for an item. Don't forget the staple items, such as: pens, pencils, erasers, paper etc.

SOCIAL MEDIA MOGUL: Some of you older kids may have developed a following by now on one of the social media networks like Twitter or Facebook. Keep adding good content and sometimes sponsors will contact you or you can ask your parents to help you find them. I'm talking over 4,000 followers if not 10,000+ for better sponsors.

LAWN MOWER: Surely your parents will let you borrow the lawn mower for your side business of mowing lawns. Just be sure to take good care of it, it's your money maker. Put clean gas in it and check the oil before you start each day. Clean stuck grass out from under the mower deck, it sticks especially lush green grass or wet grass. This can be a steady job all the grass growing season and same customers every year. Do a good and fair job and hit them early before the next growing season starts, because there is usually no loyalty. Whoever knocks first gets the job for the season. Make sure to leave your phone number with them. Print out your own business cards. You can also buy magnet print paper. You run it through a regular printer and it has a thin magnet on the back. That way, the person will stick it on their fridge and call you every time, but you really should be showing up once a week like clockwork on your own. I did this starting at 10 years old and really made a killing!

SELL YOUR NAME BRAND CLOTHES: If you're the type with all the name brand jeans, dresses, shirts etc. you can resell them to stores that buy higher end clothes or sell online at places like ebay or Amazon, with your parents help, because you have to be 18 or older to make an account and to get paid.

DO CHORES: Boooo! Yeah, I said it, C-H-O-R-E-S. At least you'll be getting paid for them, it's work. Odd jobs etc. Clean up trash around their yard, clean out garages and more. Negociate the price first. You'll get the hang of how much time it took you verses the money you made and charge accordingly on the next guy.

BE A TUTOR: If you're good a math, English or some other subject, offer to tutor the neighborhood kids. Charge by the hour and try to setup time to tutor at least 3 kids a week. Don't fall behind in your own schoolwork.

YOUTUBE STAR: This can turn into a lifelong job, best to start it as a kid. Some of those guys who make vines, can get paid up to $13,000! You'll be in a sea of youtubers, so be different and be funnier! Sponsors will come to you when you build a following.

PRODUCT REVIEWER: You love to shop and try new things. Get it on video and review the products, put it on Youtube or have a blog and take pictures and give it an at least 500 word review. Boom! Money! (after you become popular).

SNOW SHOVELER: Sure, save some old man his back or some grandma a heart attack. Get out there and do it for them. It builds great character and muscle. Be sure to wear waterproof boots so you don't get your feet wet and cold.

LEAF RAKER: Do this in fall/spring in between mowing yards and shoveling snow and you'll really clean up! (pun intended).
