So I'm on the next door app for my neighborhood and a neighborhood a few streets over posted this for her son.

Ive inadvertently started WW3 in my neighborhood which is in a tiny town and very safe. There is no reason they should feel uncomfortable.

If your high school kid need to raise money by selling things I will purchase stuff from them, not the parent.

A guy at work is selling these on FB but hmtge team is also walking around in groups of 2 or 3.

I can see putting ut on FB to get more donations but for the kid not to go out at all? Nope

My son has to fundraise for football too. I told him last night I will ask my friends and post on Facebook, but it's his responsibility to earn the minimum amount of funds. I don't have time to go do more than what I already am.

He won't want to go door to door though, maybe to our neighbors only, and I'm not sure I'd let him anyway.

I'm glad kids don't seem to be doing the door to door sales very much anymore. I hate people coming to my door and I don't like people trying to sell me junk I don't want. I wouldn't even answer the door. Online is a better idea. If someone's interested, they'll tell them.

I was selling cookies door to door at 8. There is absolutely no reason a high schooler shouldn't be able to do the same.

I know our district highly discourages kids walking door to door. Its just not safe and a lot of people don't feel comfortable with it anyways. They want kids selling thru family and friends instead.

In our town the parents are told we have to sell them.  It is for the kids football but the parents are the ones responsible for selling them.  We as parents even have to sign a stupid thing that we are responsible for the sales and if we don't sell them we have to come up with the in my case $200 if I don't.

As annoying as it can be it teaches hard work. If you want something go get it. They are learning a life skill.

He should be posting, not his mom. Other than that I agree. Door to door is annoying, and very slow going anyway. It doesn't teach as much as you seem to think it does. Only an idiot sells thing's door to door still, there are much easier ways to sell something.
