Helping Young People


--by alisamom, posted Nov 19, 2018
One of my husband's work colleagues is a young kid with a girlfriend living together in am RV. They are both working multiple jobs and struggling to make ends meet.

My hubby has taken a liking to this kid, which is rare cause he doesn't like a lot of people.

Today, he treated the young man and his girlfriend to brunch to give them some ideas about continuing their educating without necessarily going to college, and later this afternoon they came over to our house to meet our dogs, because they might be interested in being our house and animal sitters this winter.

I had a few extra game cards for an arcade and we gave them those as well.

If they are interested in that, they could look online about how to do that. Or they could work for a pet sitting company and they get a profit from it. This way if something happens to the animal, the company takes care of it. Less responsibility for them. However, i did it on my own for a long time. They could make up business cards. You could be their first recommendation. They could get pet cpr certified. Good luck to them and thank you for taking a shining to the young man.
