OK--I have been known to be a little "dense"... Yesterday, I posted about how difficult child came home from school all upset. i ddin't take it too seriously--I actually thought it was kinda funny! But now I'm wondering and would just like to get some opinions from parents who have been there: difficult child does not receive any allowance at home--and she qualifies for the free lunch program at school--so we don't even give her money for lunch or snacks. Every day, difficult child homes home with candy wrappers in her pockets. It's usually from full-size packages of Skittles, full packs of gum and Granola bars. difficult child also receives lots of "presents from friends"--usually makeup, jewelry and hair accessories. Yesterday--she complained that somebody stole some money she was "holding for a friend". difficult child wants to know how to get it back but does NOT want to report the incident to the principal or this person's parents. difficult child had about $10 in cash in her pockets that she was "holding" for other people. OK--board sleuths. What am I missing? Busywend has suggested that perhaps difficult child is just being entrepreneurial--perhaps selling something to make extra money. What do you think?
