Babysitting

Babysitting for family or friends is a great way to get some initial job experience. You get paid to play games and have fun. And once the kids are in bed, you have some time to yourself. Best of all, babysitting experience shows your future employers that you’re reliable and mature—no parent would leave their kids with someone they didn’t trust.

Retail + Fast Food

If you’re a people person, the retail industry is for you. You could work at a trendy clothing store or a busy food court. You could even bus tables or work as a host at a restaurant. Retail doesn’t pay very well, but working as a waitress or coffee barista will guarantee some tips to supplement your pay.

Other Jobs

If you like working outside, think about working in construction, or try your hand at house painting. Sometimes a special skill will qualify you for a unique job. If you’re a great swimmer, get your certification and teach lessons! If you like animals, see if your local shelter is hiring.

Make sure you can balance your work hours with your homework. School should always be your first priority—you don’t want to be flipping burgers forever! The best jobs require a lot of experience and training. Now is a great time to get a jump start on your career. Good luck!

I have to keep sites where I have any kind of interaction with people I haven't met face to face a secret, and it gets hard sometimes because I'm on quite a few roleplay sites which obviously involve chatting/interacting with people. I trust everybody on those sites though, but try telling my mom that.     My parents have gotten a lot better since then, but they're still strict about the chat sites and all. My mom is still very strict, but not nearly as much as then. I guess it's because I've gotten older. I'll be 13 in a few days. c: ALSO. If any of you saw my other post, pretend you didn't xD For some reason I thought I'd posted the original forum post. xDD I guess that's what happens when you haven't been on a site in a couple of years, you start forgetting things.

I know exactly how you feel.  I'm going through the same thing. The thing to know is none of it's your fault.  And you can visit your mom or your dad.  You can try to get your mind of it by hanging out with your friends at school.  I feel your pain.   And I feel bad that this kind of stuff happens in life.  But god will make everything better. :)
