How can 10 year olds make money with overprotective parents

I really want some money and since I am ten I should be able to get some.My parents will not even let me do chores or a lemon aid stand.Is there any way I can get some?

"Overprotective" sounds like there is something wrong with your parents. I would call them good parents, looking out for your welfare. Either way, child labor laws don't allow anybody to hire a child under 16.

The best paying job for a ten year old person is doing school work. The better you do in school, the more you will be paid EVERY DAY of your life. A person that goes to college will make millions of dollars more in their life than one that doesn't. Figure it out. You can't make that kind of money with a lemonade stand.

Not completely true.. you can find lots of people who want to pay you to do things to help them out... ask old lady's on your street if you can shovel their drive way in the winter, take out their garbage. Ask your neighbor, and friends who are adults if you can help them out around the house, at their job if they're self-employed. A lot of people will give you a few bucks for helping out or help you out in other ways.

Don't say "can I do anything to make money" most adults are really turned-off by that and will think you are greedy and selfish. start by offering to help out around your house and neighborhood and when you know your good at stuff offer to help out or to learn.

Lots of people get rich before they ever get an education, if they know the right people or have good enough ideas! Develop your skills as a musician, artist, and helper-outer and make some friends! Who knows, they might be rich!

So couldn't you then you then just use a different devise (different IP address) and click the adds yourself?
I'm 10, too, so I know how you feel. My parents won't even let me out of the house unless my friends are outside with me.So I came up with something that got me 20 bucks in one day. I know it doesn't sound like much, but it was surprising. I made these really cool necklaces with just a piece of string and some beads. I wore it to school, and one girl gave me 2 bucks for it! so there is more ways to make money other than to walk a dog or babysit. hope this helped!
