Brooklyn Beckham Has A Weekend Job at a Coffee Shop, To Learn the Value of Money

The Beckhams’ eldest son, Brooklyn, is reportedly on £2.68-per-hour and is subject to the strict working laws for under 16s in the U.K. This is all in aid of Brooklyn’s development as a young man; teaching him the true value of money so he doesn’t turn into another celebrity wild child, born into a life of luxury and decadence.
“Brooklyn has got the world at his fingertips and could have a life of luxury if he wanted. But the lad is not that way inclined,” an anonymous source said, according to ITV. “Brooklyn and his three siblings (Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two) have all had a great start in life - much better than most. But David and Victoria want them to know what hard work is like.”
Last year, David Beckham explained that he and his wife Victoria wanted to do right by their kids. "We try to lead by example, by showing them it's important to work hard. That's one of the key things me and my wife have always done, [both] before we had children, and now [that] we have four children,” he said.
"I've done that throughout my footballing career and I'll continue to do it outside. We juggle everything around the family because our main priority is the children, simple as that, and it always will be, but being hard-working is the best thing you can show children."
