Well, if you're underage you're a little stuck doing what dad tells you to do but when you get to college, you should be able to get a full scholarship and work-study there if you keep your grades up. Or, if you want, try to find a paid volunteer position. It's not technically a job and you'd still have a little bit of cash from it.

Why does your Dad not want you to work? Is he afraid you grades will suffer and you will lose your scholarship? Is he too busy to drive you there and back? Do you live in an area where there is alot of crime, and he is afraid of you becoming a victim? And what do you need money for? Have you asked your father for money? or offered to do things around the house to earn money? what about babysitting? would he let you do that? It is hard not to have money for the things you want. But remember, where there is a will, there is a way.

To me, and by no means am I an expert, you sound like a great kid. I have a couple of teens, one has a job close by, and one is waiting until she is old enough (in the US, you have to be 15 1/2). I am sure that one of 2 things will happen. 1) Your Dad will give it 2) You will wait until you can do it for yourself. You will be able to attain all the education you need, which will bring you all the money you need. Keep up with Mylot. it may not be the kinda cash you are looking for, but it is a start. And who knows, you might meet some people who can help you. Just beware of the bad guys.:)

Don't ever say that life is unfair to you. It's only a challenge God has given and all you have to do is not giving up because there will come a day that you're also on top. Well, you are so blessed because you are smart and keep studying hard to fulfill all your dreams.

youre wright but id wish id had money you know im not the kind of person which is lasy and waits for her parents to give money.im a rather independent person i want to get money knowing that i earned them for my own struggle.and i get very mad when i see my collegs that are ungratefull even do they have a lot of money and they treat persons like me with a superior air.from this point of view i tink its not fair
