  • Never. They are a great way to teach business skills and money management... Many small businesses started out as road side stands and grew...

  • Well around 10 is when alot of people stop buying, but around 16 is when they can and should start trying to find more mature work. Examples:
    1. Mowing Lawns
    2. Snow/Leaf removal
    3. Cleaning Houses
    4. Babysitting
    5. Yard Sale
    6. Farm work

  • I think once they can start working in a "real" place is a good time to stop. Then let someone younger have a turn :)

  • i would probably say maybe 10 or so

  • I would say maybe around 10 yrs old. But why would it matter if your doing for a good cause or charity. You could 90 and still sell lemonade. LOL
