How to get a decent job at 13 years old?

My parents don't feed me or buy me that much food, so I'm usually on my own. I used to go buy myself meals and food by stealing money from my mom's purse, but ever since she rearranged it, I can't find the money. I had a job awhile back doing a rich kid's homework, but she moved. I need a job. What do I do?!?

You can do simple things like offering to clean up leaves from neighbor's gutters/driveways (since it's autumn). You should charge around four dollars.

You know what,if everyone is going to accuse me and harass me all because I asked on how to get a job, just pretend I never asked this question. BECAUSE EVERYONE IS MAKING A BIG FREAKING DEAL OVER NOTHING. just immature...
Report as
Really...we're immature? You're the one complaining that your parents are starving you, but you've lived in some pretty exotic places, play musical instruments, and sound pretty happy for a kid whose parents don't feed her. If you'd just asked about a job nobody would have given it a second thought...

Your'e right...I guess it's time to give up. I'm sorry about all this. I get fed like a regular kid, but I have an eating disorder and I have obsessive compulsive eating disorder. I know, what I did was wrong. Please forgive me... :,(

It's me, poke girl. I got timid from your comments and signed myself out. I never knew my password. SERIOUSLY, ITS ME IM NOT IMPERSONATING ANYONE.

You don't need forgiveness, just don't pla with tender hearts. You really made some people feel sad for you and that's not very nice. If you want attention, try to help other people, that will make you feel good about yourself.

Yes, I'll bet you could be helpful on here. Another thing I'll bet you would be good at is writing stories. Have you thought about that?
Report as
Yeah, I have. I write poems and stories almost every single day.

Try self-publishing. You need to keep that fertile imagination of yours busy!

My book I'm making is called 'the last option'. It's about a 13 year old girl who wants to be a cop when she grows up, but she has bad grades. She then joins a secret union of young-teen cops because they offered her a scholarship to Harvard law school. However, she and her friends risk their lives in this book.

Sounds very interesting. But remember you have to go to college/university and get your 4-year degree before you can go to law school.

You can mow the lawn, wash cars, ask neighbors if you can do their chores, help homework, or go help at a local restaurant and ask for food for return. Good luck sweetie.
