Mow yards like his daddy. I told him I dont want him to. I want him to learn computer programming or something to do with computers. But I told him I will support what ever he wishes. Again he wants to mow yards. Well or be a sprint car driver. hes almost 11 and mows my yard (21") when he comes over. Im sure he can get a few houses wround here to mow to make some play money. My main question is, what age should I let him do this. Hes very smart and very safe.. This is kinda funny. But when he mows here, he wears jeans t-shirt his little work boots and wears my clear grinding full face shield. He tries to use the hand held blower, but its still alittle heavy for him.. Oh I pay him $5 per cut, ONLY if it looks decent. If not I show him what he missed and he will fix it.
