In some counties, teenagers can have jobs while they are still students but many other advanced countries have a negative attitude. As far as I am concerned, I oppose that teenagers go to work because they are not ready to have jobs . My arguments for this point are listed as follows.
Firstly, Job or career needs a lot of knowledge and technology which one need to learn and accumulate for quite a long time. Teenagers still don’t have enough knowledge and technology for a job or career. The main purpose in the stage of teenager is to study and make a foundation for their future. Besides, different period of life has propensity for different thing in terms of human body and mental development. For instance , teenagers are much easier to learn language than adults. If we don’t treasure this time we will regret.
Secondly, Teenager’s body is in the course of growing up and their mental status is not stable. They are not suitable for brain work because they still don’t have that knowledge and skill but their bodies don’t fit much physical work too. Work may become a heavy burden for them and usually they are too young to make any adaption and protection. It is much harmful for them.
Of course, Teenagers are curious and may hope to participate work to show they are mature. For some difficult families, teenager goes to work can help solve some living problem. But letting teenager go to work is very bad for them in terms of their physiology characteristics and for the future of our society. Not only parents should take their responsibilities raise their children but every one in our societies have responsibilities to help children take their schooling safely.
From what discuss above, I don’t support that teenagers have jobs while they are still students because they are not ready to do jobs.
