    • Dear Jaime,
      I can relate with you when you say you dont want to go to school. I wish school was short and after a couple boxes I too can say “time to go home”.

    • I like how you talked about the struggles you go to and trying to fix them

    • Dear Jamie,
      I appreciate you sharing all the struggles you’ve been through so far this year, and it’s good that you’re trying change most of that to succeed in school. Staying focused and ready minded will always allow you to reach your goals in the far run. Keep up the good work!

    • Jaime,
      I think that this is something that is different for everyone depending on their circumstance. Some people are devote all their time to school and extracuriculars and couldnt handle and job while somepeople need too. I think that there is a value in working but that it is different for everybody and might not boost many students motivation. I dont know if there is any one answer on whether teens should work or not.

    • Jaimie,
      I agree with you that there is more to having a job as a teen than making money, for it is important to learn and have an early exposure to responsibilities and what the real world is like. Here is an article about your point that I think you would find interesting: https://www.teenlife.com/blogs/pros-cons-teens-getting-jobs

    • Jaime,
      I totally agree with your points. As soon as I got a job I started to appreciate the amount of money more and what my parents do for me. It humbles you and depending on the job you get, you respect other people that work more too. Getting a job matured me and made me grow as a person. I also agree you need to be careful. You shouldn’t overwork yourself or focus too much on work as a kid. You should enjoy your childhood while you have have it.

      I think the points you brought up are true for many teens. When I got a job, it changed who I was as a person. It made me think about what I have and how hard it is to accomplish a goal. I think this is a lesson all should learn. At the same time this pends on what type of job your are working at. I think your job should be reflective on what you like and who you are as a person. I worked as a camp counselor and found it very rewarding teaching lessons to younger kids. By putting goals in school I do think positivity would come out of it because we are incentive driven people. Great piece keep writing.
