You have an 11-yr-old willing to work? Hang on to him!
Seniors always need help with this or that. They usually will think up something for a kid to do just to have somebody to hang out with. It wd be good for him as well.Children who will sit and listen to older people learn much. Maybe u could visit the local church and see if they have any (Kind and Normal) seniors who are shut-ins. Have him go in do a little dishes, make sandwhiches, and hand them the remote. lol. *They do love their shows.* I did it when I was a youngster and loved it very much.
Rake leaves, clean out someones shed/garage, wash cars, walk dogs, etc.
Many people will pay him to mow lawns even with their own mower.
I think a company should open a new type of job for kid ages 10-14 and pay at least $7 an hr.
well u could wrap a towel round your head then go out side and give fortunes to people for like a pound or something
I know babysitting is something young girls usually do to earn money, but he's at the right age to start babysitting if that was something he wouldn't mind doing. Also, he could look into tutoring his peers...the ones who may be having trouble in a subject that he is an expert in. I don't know, just my suggestions! I hope he finds something soon!
Have him do your everyday life skills type of chours, and then slide him a few bucks. I was in and out of trouble as a kid, but unlike my friends, I started working at age 12, so by the time I was 18 I had way more experience and a stronger work ethic.
How about, light cleaning for neighbors - using their stuff (washing windows, dishes, etc)? (Mowing lawns is also a possibility if they have their own mower.)
Give him a list of chores to do.
