    I am having ahuge debate with my uncle. His stance is regardless of full time education, I should be providing financial support to my family. My view is of course the opposite.

    Please give me more arguments why I should not be doing? Or if you side with him, your opinion.

    So, bearing in mind, college level students aged 16-18, should I be providing money to my family bearing in mind I am in full time education?


    My idea of board is that it is paid as it goes towards gas/electric/food etc. The government provides money to parents of full time education students precisely for this. So why should I therefore work and give money while I am studying for A-levels, then preparing to go on to UNI, to get a degree in economics, to then provide much more to society as a whole. Through paying a greater percentage of taxes and generally being a more informed and educated invidivual in society.

    I have rushed this post so I may go back to edit it in the morning. It is 1AM right now.

    So again, bearing in mind, college level students aged 16-18, should I be providing money (get a part time job) to my family bearing in mind I am in full time education?
