Few would disagree that one of the biggest challenges parents face is training their sons and daughters for life as adults. Parents should begin when their children are old enough to understand responsibility. Simple chores like making the bed, feeding the dog, or clearing the table should be assigned. When children reach their high school years, the next logical step is to get a part-time job.

When you think about it, part-time jobs are really just an extension of good parenting. Submitting to authority, being punctual and showing respect are all things that have already been taught - hopefully - at home. It's just that these norms are being further developed and reinforced in a different environment.

Part-time jobs help young people make the shift into adulthood more smoothly. In addition to practical skills, jobs teach numerous lessons that are rarely learned in the classroom. Part-time jobs help teenagers build self-esteem, learn interpersonal skills and manage their time and money better. Of course, schoolwork should be a high priority, but part-time jobs don't have to be demanding - just a few hours a week. After all, the goal for parents is to raise children who are well-rounded, not lopsided. Right?
