My Kid

The article written by Victor Flowers

My teenage son has always been a great kid and never tried to get out of doing his assigned chores around our house. As he began to get older, he was always looking for ways to make a few extra bucks, as I refused to spend every penny I made on electronic games and all the other stuff he just “had to have.” Two summers ago, he noticed that our next door neighbor seemed to be having difficulty keeping his lawn neat and tidy, as he never seemed to be home from work early enough to do any yard work. My son asked if he could mow their lawn on a weekly basis and the neighbor was glad to pay him to help keep his yard in good shape. He did such a good job, other neighbors began to ask him to cut their lawns also and now he has all the work he can handle. Most of the people wanted to pay him with credit cards, so we went to find a method to handle the payments. He is happy to have the work-and the money-and I am happy he is doing something productive-and profitable!

That is one industrious child indeed. Not all children is that industrious. That child definitely has a place in the future.
