I don’t have children. But, my sainted Mom sent me to hustle up carrying bags for folks outside the local supermarket. I worked for tips and some times it was up six flights. Then at the end of the day, I’d give her what I earned and depending upon how broke we were, she give me some back. After that I couldn’t wait to get a real job, it was easier. I had a regular part tim job when I was 14 — due to Gooferment regulations. And was working full-time when I was 17 and in college full-time. Now 70, wish I could do it again.
