How can 11 year old make money?

I want this new Ultra flip cam, because i love moviemaking and stuff, and i need some money. my mom is a bit overprotective so i cant even go to the neighbors house and ask if they want their lawn raked or something... so any advice anyone?
-----------------------------------------------------------
I cant get any money from my mom, not even like 5 bucks. maybe 3 bucks.

My mom knows i go on these websites. and im good with my school.

Also, im very mature for my age. i dont have any "toys". expect my laptop.
Thanks.

Paperboys/Grils depend on age now a days you need to be 14 in my country to make money like that.
Any age here, just be able to do it :D I think...
Your mother is not alone when it comes to being "overprotective." Crimes against children have made many of the options to make money that were available years ago, totally impossible today. Things like knocking on doors through your neighborhood and delivering newspapers early in the morning are a greater risk than most parents today are willing to take. I don't blame your mom for being protective. A Ultra Flip cam is simply not worth the risk.

The bright side is that you do a good job at your schoolwork. The people who do the best in school get the good paying jobs and make enough money to buy anything they want. You sound like a really bright guy. Your time will come.

but you should still b allowed 2 have a life
it is not ""11 year old "" ! it is that make money means that someone must pay exactly for the work and a work it is more than 3 dollars !

so the question is : how many dollars can i won ? for what work ?
all is depending where you live : in a flat, or in a house,near a road or a hotel...
maybe a neighbourg is in vacation for few days and need that his cat eats or to take his dog outside (in NY, it is a real job) or to fill up water for his plants.
maybe police needs someone, or a number of a car or a photo of someone who noone knows. Maybe a girl needs you and help his parents will be a thing whith a value of few dollars. Maybe someone live very far from the post and need help for a letter, or a stamp.

yea what they said
because some 11 cant wait to be like 30 and have their dream job and raise their kids the way they wish their parents would have raised them trust me I hate being 11
im 11 and i was hoping for a good answer. I didnt get one at all. I live in Kentucky, in the middle of nowhere. How am i supposed to make money? My parents can barely even buy us basic stuff like clothes and whatnot. I dont even own a computer! (Right now im visiting my cuzin in the city.) My parents need help making money, and i want to help them, help us. Anyone know what to do in situation? Cuz i shore dont.

if ur really good at school, maybe u could volenteer to help the kindergardeners who are falling behing at school after school and have their parents pay you
On Ebay, sell some things that are worth something like autographs and rare things like Kooky Pens-Pineapple Pete, Gustav, Peanut, etc-. Also ask neigbors if you can help around for ten dollars a week. You could tutor kids for 10 dollars a day and you would make a good profit after that. Mow lawns, water gardens, small things turn out to be big profit. I hope this worked!

You can't collect the money from your auctions on eBay without being 18 or older.
you could go on your moms account
if you have a nafe money you can by stuff or if you have lots of stuf you can have garagsail and get money
rlly? how is an 11 year old sopposed to sell things on ebay
maybe by saving them money will be making them money I mean doing things like making sure the lights are turned off when not needed, not waisting things like paper, trash bags, food, ect. have dad turn the hot water heater down to save on elec. only use half the amount of shampoo and stuff u can even water down the shompoo, conditionar, laundry soap, ect try recycling everything u can and using some things twice like ur bath towel so less laundry to wash which means saving on water and laundry soap if u want to work to help them but cant leave the house because of mom worrying then help them save money and consider it as working for them cause they need u

you should try to make a lemonade stand and sell different kinds of lemonade like limeaid, rasberry lemonade, extra sweet, extra sour, and half and half which is 1/2 tea and 1/2 lemonade you could also sell cookies and/or cupcakes too!

If you live in or near an apartment complex, you could go door-to-door and take out people's garbage bags for a dollar a bag. That's what my sister, my friend and I used to do for cash when we were young. There's also the quintessential lemonade stand. Or, if you're in a suburb, mow people's lawns, rake leaves, or wash their cars or other random odd jobs (please don't go into people's houses for safety reasons).

You mentioned that your mother is very overprotective, though, so my suggestion would be to just do this stuff covertly and hide the money in a safe place. Unfortunately, society makes the preteen and teenage years very tumultuous, necessitating subversiveness like that.

Hope that helps. Good luck, little guy.

This is a really good idea but we just moved out of an apartment😤😶😤
Say you want a laptop, or an ipad, or you just want money, or... well, you get my point. So you need money. Why not ask for that on your birthday instead of presents? Just ask for money. So what if you dont get toys? Are you still gonna need them when you have a bunch of money? Im 11 and I asked for money every time it was my birthday ( and christmas ) and I have $700. Ive only been saving since I was 8, and I spent alot. I get an about $300 every year just by doing that. Also, if you want something that costs alot, try telling your parents that youll pay for half of it. Thats how I got my laptop. :)

Well I'm also 11. And I dont want to start doing small jobs yet, im going to wait until im maybe 13. My idea was to advertise at my local grocery market that I'm willing to pet sit for some extra bucks. I live in a really small town, and at my grocery store alot of people put posters on the windows, like signs that they're selling things. I also was thinking when im 13, I could sell some things off of my parents Ebay and I would get the pay.

You're right, sometimes, but if your a person who's family doesn't have a lot of money, that isn't the answer. I usually pet sit for $10 and save up money from Christmas, which I get about $40 for Christmas and birthday. Also, you can enter contests, or, if you are good at singing, or if your, well, pretty for girls, you can be a model and make money from that. And one more thing, when you are doing a bake sale, or stand, remember do make the stand in front of a busy store, if the owner is okay with it. You can also sell stuff you don't need at consignment.

OK if you want some real cash that you can get easily try to get onto one of your parent's computers (if they have one). Next ask them if you can get a paypall account. If you get that far then you can surf the web and go to websites that pay you a little bit of money by watching or reading adds. You can also go to websites that have you complete serveys. If you find a good website you can probably at most make 500 dollars per week. But you will mot likely olny make about 20-100 dollars I hope my advice helps.
Hi I am also 11.my mom is pretty much the same as urs.
I know that it will take some time to collect it,but there r
ways.You can do chores and stuff like that to make some
Money. If you choose not to do that you can always just
Ask for a loan.if you tell her u will pay her back she is
More likely to give it to you.(you don't actually have to pay
Her back.just "forget" about it and leave it).on the other
Hand I just got more freedom so you can also try walking
Dogs like I did, just try and get a friend to go with you
And she will probably let you go.and if you set a curfew
She will take that as a way your growing up and might let
You go out more and maybe for freedom all together
Hope I helped

everyones saying oh in my country you can be any age to do a paper round well jokes on you coz I dont see 1-10 year olds doing rounds in your country so haha well done einstien(!)
if you really want money find rich houses in your local area and ask if you can wash their car/s,if you ask me people earn far too much these days the children take advantage of their parents financial and shopping money.
lemonade stand,car wash,door wash,sell homemade food,...
ect these may or may not be useful but i'm 11 and trying to be helpful,if your american well live there then it's much safer(sort of) so the council +government let younger ones get job eg-my bestfriend has a sister in america,she is getting paid $2,000 (dollars) every month she is currently working 18 hours everyday she is training to be an accountant,lawyer,nurse,physician,college teacher,art student,works at a car polish service station,designs clothes to sell,musician,sells her songs,performs at concerts,and I could go on all day(!) i'm actually being serious and guess what?
SHE'S 13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
she's being taken advantage of just like your parents are! be realistic,calm,search for jobs,dont nag.
i may be 11 however I have the mind/brain punctuallity of a 17 year old!
trust me nagging dosen't work,i've been there!
i dont get pocket money/allowence I dont have any jobs
but hey ho i'm alive right!? surely you dont need loads of money!if you do,seriously(i do!) then borrow from friends/family dont feel like it will be embarrasing! it's totally not much anyway I lent 60npound to my mate she paid me it back 2 weeks later,that could be you!
parents will ease off and give you some money maybe get more advance such as £20-£100 if you just show some light and responsibility and prove you can make them proud of you and they'll want to praise/reward you!
this took me 2 hours to write because I knew that I had to think carefully about what im telling you!
