When kids get a job but don't drive
I just want some advice on how to proceed since I know it's a conversation coming up soon.
SD16 got a summer job yesterday. She doesn't have a drivers license or a car....I have no idea why other than BM is afraid to let her have that freedom as she is still totally under her thumb and BM stalks SD's phone nonstop even though she is a good kid who causes no problems...and BM doesn't let her hang out with friends much like most teen girsl want to do...she has even told her NO she can't go the football games . SD very very immature for her age....so she isn't even to the age of even thinking of do anything out of the way.
So...she randomly gets a job and she starts next weekend and then goes full on when school is out during the weekdays. First of all, BM barey makes her even go to school, and she is normally late for school. BM works full time, DH works full time, and I work full time.
This job is minutes away from my work.....a long way away from DH and BM's work. So, I'm just waiting on the question for me to take her. I don't think it is my responsibility to take her to and from work.
Is it a normal thing for kids to get jobs if they don't drive? I mean how on earth do they get to and from??? MY SD16 drives and has her own car, so no issues for her summer job.
BM didn't consult with DH on SD getting a job, so my only thought is nobody thought this out....just fearful it is going to fall on me as if I don't already have enough on my plate with my own 3 teen daughters and 1 year old.
Thoughts? Do I just say no when asked? I literally drive right by the place twice a day.
