In some countries, teenagers can have jobs while they are still students. Some people maintain a negative attitude towards this phenomena. As far as I am concerned, I strongly support that teenagers have jobs while they are still students.
In the first place, job can expand teenagers`life experience, and help develop their interest that may become important for their future career choice. For example, a teenager who has a job can acquire an actual idea about how adults work together, how they resolve problems together, thus a team working spirit may form in his mind. In the meantime, he he can find himself whether interested in the job he works for, for instance, a teenager who works in a vehicle repairing shop may find himself facinated by the machanics and may make up his mind to become a mechanic scientist at his young age.
In the second place, job can make teenagers become more independent and more mature. For a teenager who comes from a poor family, he can not only earn some money through the job to ease a part of the family burden,but also he can support some of his own needs for books, CDs, clothes etc. furthermore, he can find that it is not so easy to make a living, and he may become more understanding and passionate towards his parents and other adults.
Although some people do think that job will result in an unsatisfactory study score by occupying teenagers` study time, I believe it is more advantageous for teenagers not only because it can open up teenagers` horizon but also make them become more independent and muture.
