The seasons here are changing and Six Flags Over Texas opens next week! The Diva is trying to get herself a job (her taste is way to expensive for me! - That chick is HIGH MAINTENANCE!!) so that she can maintain her lifestyle. she applied for a job at Six Flags. She had her first interview today and we are waiting to see if she will get a call back for the second interview. She is mega excited.
I personally do not think that she has the attitude that is compatible to a boss telling her what to do, but maybe a PAYCHECK will curb her attitude and make her more agreeable!!!!!!
I love when teens get a part time or summer job. It builds character. They learn money management skills and they learn to prioritize. My kids quickly learned how to prioritize and manage their money because I made it extremely clear... YOU ARE NOT BANKING YOUR MONEY AND SPENDING MINE!!!
That's right when my children got jobs they inherited their own maintenance bills. I also made them start bank accounts to save a little bit, so they are not broke at the end of the summer. I still paid the household bills and bought groceries but they got their own essentials like hair products (Do you know what females spend on hair products???), perfume, lotions, deodorant, school supplies and in some cases clothes. Don't get me wrong I bought them clothes but if they felt they HAD TO HAVE $100 sneakers or jeans, etc best believe that came out of their own pocket. Surprise, surprise that no longer became a necessity. Kids get REAL cheap when they have to spend their own money!!
Anyway, I pray that Diva gets the job! Hallelujah!!
Well it appears that Diva did NOT get the job. She is disappointed but not shattered! Her first ever interview was a learning experience for her. But because of her age (15) and the number of hours she can legally work she was not hired. But she will be talking with her school counselor to find out if there are other jobs for teens her age.
So keep praying! She needs money to keep herself in Babyphat!!!
