    The problem is at 15 you are only legally able to work a few hours and this is why the working world available to you is paper rounds and very little else. You might find a couple of hours washing up in a pub or something by hunting around but it is really hard.

    Are you parents claiming all they are entitled to with your sister and getting good help and advise with this?

    My sister averages nearly $20 an hour with her own simple business picking up dog droppings. She works outside, setting her own hours, and does it using a bicycle as transportation. It is also something a child age 10 and up can do alone, with an adult, or a whole family business. This article describes how.
