From the article: Teen Babysitters Wanted
Teenagers, especially those age 16 or under, are often hard pressed to find a job ... any job ... and in particular one that pays decent money. Babysitting does provide teens with some much-desired cash and is a job that offers flexibility around other activities as well. What do you to get a job or how do you market yourself to parents?
