It’s absurd how they will make sure that law enforcement does not have the best PR.
Parents try to teach children the value of money: the fact that nothing comes out of thin air. Some give children an allowance that needs to be enough for various delicacies and needs. Still others pay for extra tasks or allow the child to earn a penny while doing minor work for neighbors. Every way is good because the money earned by the child is considered differently.
There are many ideas, but they are not always approved by the authorities. As it turns out, even a little girl can be considered a criminal breaking the law. The sale of lemonade is one of the oldest ways to make a few pennies by children. It also teaches work – first you have to squeeze lemons, prepare the drink, and then patiently wait for customers. Older children cope themselves, while younger kids might benefit from parents’ help.
Andre Spicer was very surprised when the police not only ordered the closure of his daughter’s lemonade stand, but also imposed a fine of £ 150 on her! The whole situation was near their home, while thousands of people were going to the Lovebox Festival in east London, setting up a small table where the girl had a few lemonade jars that she sold for 50 cents a mug. But the police did not like it.
The girl was in tears, she was asked repeatedly what she had done wrong. Andre filed a complaint because he thought that taking a child who earned a couple pounds on lemonade as an economic offender was overdone. He thinks they did nothing wrong, and that they did not make any money. They did not threaten public security.
The complaint has been acknowledged, and the girl is expected to receive an apology and cancellation of the fine.
