    You don't need the money. You're 13! What are you going to spend it on exactly? I should imagine your parents are still covering your food/warmth/shelter requirements...

    ... and realistically, what viable skills do you have when you're 13? I'm pretty sure at that age I limited myself to mowing neighbours' lawns..

    Well, because of your age it may be difficult but the first thing that comes to mind is babysitting. Could you try that? I have seen advice given at other sites like looking around your neighborhood to see what needs to be done - like yard work, errands and the like. You also seem to have access to computers so you should look into something that involves computers. I belong to a Starting A Business/Working at Home mailing list and one of the (homework)assignments was to name 5 programs that are on your computer and then we would try and come up with job ideas for those programs.

    i didn't start working till i was about 14/15?? but when i did it was babysitting!! i would advise you to start with young families, as with older ones there might not be a huge age diff netween u, so it'll be hard for you to have any authoritie over them!!
    and make sure its ony one or two kids, any more and it could get crazy!!
    (p.s always determine bedtimes with parents before they leave, and do it in front of the children!!!)

    The key on the left of your keyboard saying "CAPS LOCK" allows you to write in lower case if you press it.

    There might be a coat they want and their parents won't buy it for them? There's a difference between want and need. And if you think you need to damage your education by working at 13 to get a coat, your future's... well, hardly wonderful!

    If parents are abusive, the answer's hardly "get a job!" Get help!
