You should pat yourself on the back and be proud that your out working hard at 13 years old. You'll have more money and work less than your other friends in HS and college if you stick with it. I remember before making this a full time career, in middle school i could make $300/week easy. In highschool the only job i ever had was mowing yards, i have never worked for anyone my entire life.

I haven't been around for the last couple of years. Some things never change. I have ragged on kids who call it their own when their dad's buy the stuff or it is their old man's equipment. Whatever.

However, if he is working hard does a great job, earning money etc. He is learning some life lessons at a young age that will take him far in life.

Lay off man. Just because he's doing something right at his age doesn't give you the right to walk all over him! He said he bought the machine, so atleast give him the benefit of the doubt.
