Proud Dad Sparks Fierce Debate Online After Posting Photos of 14-Year-Old Working at Burger King

Getting a job you enjoy is a cause for celebration for most people. We need a job to pay our expenses, don’t we? Exactly. There is already a heated debate on Twitter about whether or not putting our children in the workforce at a young age is a good thing.

Chris Crawford shared a few photos of his 14-year-old son on Facebook. He wanted to brag about his son in the way that a proud parent would. His son works part-time at Burger King in order to save money for a car. “Not only does he work every day he can, including weekends when other youngsters are enjoying their summer vacation,” he continued, “but he also stays late and gets up early practically every day.” Making his own money, saving for a car, making good decisions, and growing into a decent young man!!!! He has done so well! I’m so proud of him!”

As Crawford is pleased that his son has worked hard and saved money, others are furious that a father would encourage his child to work rather than enjoy his youth. A Twitter user retweeted the article and shared her thoughts. “This is depressing,” she wrote.

Twitter users are far from the only ones concerned about a 14-year-old working “every day he can.”. Several people responded to the tweet with concerns about the boy’s current and future circumstances.

He’s definitely an A. Working 24/7 and avoiding home life. Will overwork himself to the point that he will be jaded to hard work later in life when it counts. Going to have difficulty learning moderation, because his extremism is rewarded. I agree.

Some spoke up in support of the 14-year-old who was working, claiming that those who claim there is a problem are the ones who are the true issue.
