There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

Dr. Oz's 25 Things Every Teen Should Do for a Happy, Healthy Life

Dr. Oz's 25 Things Every Teen Should Do for a Happy, Healthy Life
1. Realize that you control what goes into your body.

2. Realize that it's never too late to start adopting healthy habits. You get a do‑over.

3. Walk ten thousand steps a day (about five miles).

4. Have one buddy who shares your ideals about living a healthy lifestyle and who you're comfortable talking with about healthy habits.

5. Avoid known toxins such as tobacco, bisphenol A (BPA) in plastics, and toxins found in dry cleaning and some cosmetic products. That means stay away from formaldehyde (found in some Brazilian Blowouts, "smoking water," and embalming fluid).

6. Regularly avoid the major categories of unhealthy foods: saturated fats, trans fats, added sugar, added syrup, non–100 percent whole grains.

7. Eat cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, and arugula three times a week.

8. Take a multivitamin every day and get your recommended daily amount of calcium through food or supplements as well as vitamin D and omega-3 fats.

9. Floss and brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day.

10. Have your waist size equal less than half your height (in inches).

11. Sleep eight and a half to nine hours a night (in greater than ninety-minute blocks).

12. Do some kind of exercise nearly every day, including some form of resistance exercise and cardiovascular exercise.

13. Do one small (or big) form of stress management every day. Have your vaccinations against major diseases up to date.

14. Commit to not texting and driving.

15. Have a passion. And do it as often as you can! Safely.

16. Protect your ears from noise louder than a lawn mower (including keeping your personal device on less than 70 percent of max when using earphones).

17. Keep your phone and other devices out of your hands (and away from your eyes) while driving (or walking, if you're in urban areas).

18. Find a mentor.

19. Practice smart internet safety, knowing that what you write or post can be saved forever, and be smart about who you communicate with.

20. Make sex a choice, not something that "just happens." And if you are considering becoming sexually active (whether you're a guy or a girl) remember to always carry a condom. And use a second method of contraception if you're having heterosexual sex.

21. Eliminate processed foods from your diet and substitute 100 percent whole wheat flour for white flour where you can.

22. Eat five servings of fruits and veggies per day.

23. Eat fruit but skip the juice unless you are specifically trying to gain weight.

24. Don't squeeze zits.

25. Wear a helmet when cycling, Rollerblading, skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, or rock climbing and wear a seat belt whenever you're in a car.


  1. Got your comment off the Ga Group and went to your blog and followed thru GFC, FB and Twitter. Sorry that happened. I moved about 2 1/2 weeks ago and thankfully did not lose anything but I knew I was clueless and paid someone to do it that was running a special. If you are not following me I would love a follow back on all three also!
