More than half of all 14-year-olds participate in some type of work, from bagging groceries to babysitting the kids next door, according to the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 1997, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. White youths are much more likely to punch in than blacks or Hispanics, and girls work more freelance jobs than boys. Teachers, take heart: Kids aged 14 to 15 who work spend roughly the same amount of time on homework as those who don't have a job.
