  1. If you are underage, your parents are able to make the decisions for you. You do not become an adult in criminal cases until 17, and not as an adult for most other purposes until you are 18.

    If your parents believe that your grades are below what they should be as a result of the time you spend working, then they are doing you a favor by requiring you to discontinue working. Education is more important at a young age than making money.
