So it depends upon the extent of understanding between the parents and their child as to that how much they trust each other. If trust is strong then young adults would not mind telling parents that they work part time to earn some money and the parents would also encourage rather than discouraging them.

Another aspect in our country is the family concept is very strong and father and mother will take care of their sons till their education is completed and settled in a job. The feel if their children should concentrate on their studies and then try for a job seriously without wasting any time. If they go for part-time jobs, they feel that their children will lose time which can be utilised for studies or for searching for a job.
But there are some students who go for part-time jobs. Many of the paperboys we distribute papers in the morning are students only these days. similarly, the milk packet distributors are also mainly students only. Going for a part-time job or not, will depend on the financial condition of the family and the requirements also.

Knowledge is power.
In 2008 I met a boy selling flowers on the streets of Sitabuldi, Nagpur. Many students are not hesitating to take up part time jobs. But it is good if graduated students accept the available jobs, they can gain experience and through which their future shines well.
However, during long vacations students should utilise their time in substatntive and constructive activities which include summer job as well. It gives them exposure to real and practical world.
Why students do the part time job in foreign countries can not be accepted as a role model type thing. Generally in US and European countries they do part time jobs because it demands their culture. If you don't know then you will be surprised to know that money which parents spend on their children's education or raising them these children when grow up and begin to earn money, generally, have to return all money to their parents as a debt.
Most of them leave their parents for never meet again or meet after many years on any special occasion.
