Socializing at a football game; dancing at prom; maintaining a 4.0 GPA; earning college scholarships; and achieving valedictorian. These are all things I want to achieve in my highschool years because I understand the memories and experiences teenagers gain from high school can be life changing. With knowing this, I spend everyday working towards my goals and enjoying my high school experiences while they last. This is because I dedicate my time to school and enjoying social experiences rather than pursuing a stressful and time consuming part-time job. 62% of students that have a part-time job, experience stress and loss of time for schoolwork and social experiences, causing them to fail classes and never achieve their goals. Some things a teenager experiences in high school may even form the basis for a teenager’s future values and character.

The same life lessons taught by part-time jobs can be taught through things teenagers experience at home or school. Therefore teenagers can teach themselves responsibility and other honorable traits by working actively on their grades
