What is your stand to those children who are participating in money earning site? I know its not allowed and it was specifically indicated in any site that below 18 years old are nor allowed but what if the parents encourage them to do it and they even let their kids used their paypal account. Their are lots of parents here, are you allowing them or not? If i have kid age more 13, i think i will allow him/her. Instead of playing or downloading or watching pornographic sites, i will encourage her/his to do this. At her/his early age they know how to earn some extra bucks.

i think is good for children gain some extra money online!I think this can a good habits to start thinking about money as concept and so it must work hard usually even to have some bucks in the pocket!! I think normally the majority of the online income is not so intrusive or worst..surely when the system won't pay and so it is a scam many children cna be really bad about it..but also this it cna be considered part of the game!!

if you observe this, when its not your money or somebody gave you money it didnt last long but if its a hard earned money, you make sure that it will last long. As much as possible, you will not spend it. So we can teach our children to be responsible with their own money. and at their early age, they will know how to earned their money and as well as enjoying life.

Hi, i think this is a good question to ask too. I was wondering whether some of the members here who're not 18 years old above, i guess there is. Anyway, although there is rules and guidelines saying children are not allowed to join these sites, but i think as long as the sites are not those bad ones or will have certain adverse effect on the children, then it's fine for them to join and earn some extra money too. Rather than letting them wasting time online playing games or surfing some 'not so good' websites, it's better to let them here, at least they can know and learn about earning money online, and it's not easy to earn even a dollar nowadays.

with global economic crisis that everybody is facing right now, it will be a great help if your kids will earn their own allowance. I know this is not enough but it will be a great help for parents budget. And one more thing, at least we know what our kids doing, safe and sound in our own house.

Yuo are right. You know, I'm below 18. I just register in every website with my father's name. You are absolutely right. Instead of playing games and watching movies, we can do something useful. I'm a student and this kinda work helps me get more confidence over my ability. It's a kinda relaxation too. I'm in my vacation now. If I were not in mylot, then I'll be watching TV and wasting my time. But now, my time is more usefully spent. I can also help my parents by reducing their burden. Thanks to these sites!

Wow, you make your parents proud of you. I just hope that all children including my nephew will lear to be responsible, not only in the net but in every aspect of their life. We will not deprive children with their time of playing but not too much. now that school will be starting in a few days in the philippines and even to other country.

I liked your question. I think I have the same idea like yours. I don't have kids yet but I have a 14 years old brother who I encouraged him to start online earning. It's better than playing video games or downloading God only knows what. As he is already sitting infront of the computer I prefer that he do something useful. The only problem is most of the sites are scams which discourage you to continue. But I guess that he knows now how to invest better and how to trust himself when it comes to money. I don't prefer a child under the age of 13 start doing that. Although I remember a site that pay children money to complete surveys. It's actually for children but unfortunately I can't remember the URL.
