Twitter Debates If It Is Healthy For Teenagers To Work Hard & Earn Their Own Money

When we were young, our parents often explained to us the importance of working hard and earning money. Especially when we wasted money on shopping or eating outside, we used to get the age-old dialogue, “You’ll understand the value of money when you begin to earn.”

They weren’t wrong. However, many teenagers nowadays have begun “hustling” early to earn money. One father recently took to social media to express how proud he is of his son for working hard, making his own money, and becoming a “respectable young man”.

On the other hand, many said that by working, teenagers will understand the value of money and will develop a decent work ethic. They will also learn more about life.
