Best Summer Jobs

Jul 20, 2015

If we could have our way, we wouldn’t work at all in the summer. After all, the season is supposed to be about laying by the pool, going to cottages and eating ice cream, right? Unfortunately, most of us have to make some money to cover our everyday spending or save for something big (like gifts or even college tuition).

If you have to work, you might as well have a cool job. Here our Kidzworld’s picks for the best summer jobs.

Amusement Park Worker

Amusement parks are so much fun! If you worked at one you could spend your days in the sun (major perk) plus you probably get free entry into the park on your days off.

Movie Theatre Concession Employee

Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly popped popcorn? Most movie theatre employees get to watch as many movies as they want for free plus you might be able to snag bites of popcorn every now and then.

Babysitter

If you like being around little kids, try babysitting. Most babysitters get to do fun things with their clients, such as head to the pool or go for ice cream. Why not get paid for something you’d already be doing?!

Camp Counsellor

Summer camp is a blast. Most camps will pay their counsellors (although some are volunteer-based) in addition to providing room and board. Although you will be responsible for a group of kids, you will get to do fun stuff like go canoeing, make crafts, eat tons of cookies and have campfires!

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.

 Loosing a parent is hard, your dad knows that and I'm sure that he misses your mom just as much as you do. Whether you explain to him how you are feeling or not, you should know that your Dad will always love you and admitting to him how you feel isn't going to change that. Although it is completely understandable how you feel, you need to let your dad move one eventually. It's not fair to him if he has to spend the rest of his life alone. Even though you might not see it, its a good thin that your dad is finally feeling comfortable enough to date. It doesn't mean that he is letting go of your mom or that he will forget about her, it means that he is moving on with his life. You lost your mother and he lost the love of his life. Dating other people will probably start off being just as hard for him as it is for you. My advice is that you talk to your dad. Let him know how you feel in the most gentle and understanding way that you can. Don't flat out say that you don't want him dating anyone, tell him that you still miss your mom and its hard to see him with other people. Let me know how it goes, good luck. :)
