By

If your child is looking for a summer job, here are some ideas for 14 year olds. Jobs and pay are variable based on your location, the difficulty, and the time it takes to complete each job.

1. Babysitter

Babysitting is a popular summer job to explore when school is out. The Red Cross offers babysitters classes to prepare 11 to 15 year olds for babysitting.

2. Lawn Mowing

If your child likes to be outdoors and regularly mows your lawn, lawn mowing is a great job to explore. Be sure to determine if your child will use your mower or the homeowner's mower.

3. Yard Work

In addition to lawn mowing, children can help out with other yard work that homeowners need. Various tasks could include raking leaves, spreading mulch, or planting flowers.

4. Dog Walker

Dogs need to get out for exercise all year long, but in the summertime your kids will have extra time. Make sure that your child feels comfortable with the pet before they take them for a walk the first time.

5. Restaurant Worker

Depending on the state labor laws in your area, you may be able to be legally hired by a restaurant. Common jobs at this age include fast food workers and busing tables.
