I don't. We just ask family and don't really worry about it.<quoted text>
I went to private grade school and we had to sell crap nearly every month. I had to go door to door in a neighborhood where 80% of the kids went to the same damn school as me and were selling the same stuff. Humiliating and awful for an already shy kid. I would never make my kid do that.
J put up a "no solicitors" sign by our doorbell and kids selling delicious goodies are apparently the only ones that can read it and comprehend it. The fecking Jehovah's Witnesses don't realize it's for them.
My husband's company (sales) had a session on fundraising on Take Your Kid to Work Day. Lulu wasn't old enough last year, but I'm going to see if we can get her signed up this year. Even if you never get good at it, it's helpful to know the techniques.
