Did you order Girl Scout cookies this year? What kind?
In truth, if they aren’t sold by real Girl Scouts I’m not buying! I have very strong opinions about parents selling for their kids. I know the primary purpose is fund raising and the more sales people the better, but the secondary (and no less important) purpose is self-esteem through achievement and that doesn’t come from parents doing their work for them. Hey, I’m all for referrals but parents should not shill for their kids. It’s not teaching them tenacity and hard work, how to set and achieve goals, or the very real, very useful life-skill of sales.
It is, however, teaching them to manage.
Perhaps it’s not so bad after all.
Assuming you want kids coming out of high school with a wealth of managerial skills.
They can always hire the parents to do the grunt work.
