So...what are girls learning from selling cookies?-- My mother will sell my cookies for me-- I won't have to do anything to sell cookies because my mom does the book keeping too-- I will get all the kudos for work I never didThat's what I see. Maybe there are some kids out there actually selling, but I can tell you they are the EXTREME minority and they are most likely losing out in the 'battle for sales supremecy' within the troops.The competitiveness depends on the troop. My troop doesn't push selling MORE MORE MORE - we do try to encourage the girls to sell a small amount to participate (even if they don't sell enough to get the official cookie theme patch, we'll give them a different cookie patch) but the booth sale in front of the supermarket is fun and they do the selling/bagging/change making and interacting with customers. Of course I'm there and other adults are there, too, but the girls make the signs and try to get people to buy cookies. If you'd like to buy cookies, I think they go on sale in late January for pre-orders with delivery in March/April and our council really needs the money to help clean up their facilities from hurricane and nor'easter damage. :) The lemon ones (Savannah Smiles) were really good last year.
