I've have a trophy I won back in early middle school that says I sold the top number of candy sales in my district. I asked my son, knowing he knows how I feel about children selling fundraising stuff, if he was suprised to learn that about me. He said he was. My husband chimed in and said he agreed with me. Both of us are AGAINST children selling fundraising products. How do you feel children selling fundraising products? These are just OPINIONS. He feels it exploits children to make a profit. I feel it is a safety issue. We feel there is a maturity issue. Children aren't mature enough to resist the marketing tactics of winning free prizes nor do they always follow through. I feel it isn't always voluntary. Case in point: I didn't want to make those sales. I had an aggressive leader. Mine wasn't related to the schools but the schools do the same everyday with thier sales approach and class prizes. We feel adult taxes and adult work are supposed to pay for children things. Ironically the one fundraiser we wholeheartedly support every year because we just find them too yummy to resist is the girl scouts cookie time. Go figure. I spent $52 in less than 1 month ago. Where are they? :help: I am going to say I wish their was an easy answer. I agree in late grades that older (near adults) should learn some ownership but in younger grades I soooo wish they could find another answer than to ask young children to do fundraising. I wish our education, etc. didn't have to ask children to help with this. I'm hoping this topic doesn't backfire on me. (ducking just in case).
