In some countries, teenagers have jobs while they are still students. After thinking about it from several aspects, I don’t believe it is a good idea. The reasons are presented below.
Part-time jobs may affect students’ academic studies. Working several hours a day consumes a lot of time and one might be too exhausted to study. The main purpose of school life for teenagers is to learn scientific knowledge and techniques in preparation for their future. It is generally suggested that in order to master what they have leaned at school; students must spend at least 3 hours each day on their homework. It would be impossible for a student to work part time while maintaining a high standard of academic learning. As a result, they may find it hard to adjust to what the school and society expects from them s well as what their employers expect them to perform on job.
Another reason why I don’t approve teenagers to work part-time is that working while studying will deprive their time of sleep and will do harm to their health. Teenagers are in the process of building up their body. They need time to do exercises and engage in other activities, and they also need plenty of rest. If they work, they may sacrifice their time for sleep, club activities, exercise and recreations. Sometimes, teenagers have jobs that consume more strength than they can afford. This will be definitely harmful their health.
