Nowadays, it is often that university students are used to having an employ in order to get money. It has obvious benefits and negative effects; so it is essential to analyze deep down this point before giving an opinion, because it is a serious issue which need an important reflection.
Working during high study time (such as college and university) is a great opportunity for young people to earn experience and prepare themselves for the future as part of the workforce in their community and society. Moreover, they have a chance to discover what kind of work they really want to do, at the same time they are gaining money for their expenses.
On the other hand, parents are worried about that students have bad scores in their matter because they are focusing on the job and forgetting their academic business. Additionally, another worry is that students could leave the university or college because they only want to have money.
Nevertheless, the attitude toward both studying and working depend on each person and her/his goals. Then, from my point of view, if a student is not clear or is feeling confused, their parents should help to he/she supporting in both economic and personal needs, and avoiding that she/he works while is at the university. However, when a student is focus on his/her career, it is fundamental to encourage to he/she to work at the same time.
In conclusion, I think that in general, it is a wonderful idea that university students find a job, but it is pivotal to be careful about specific features of each student to offer better options related to his/her needs and interests.
