Girl Scout Cookies

This is the season for the selling of Girl Scout Cookies and although the GSA has many reasons for promoting this activity with young girls I have many reasons for not doing this. 

1. I do not think that children should have the responsibility of raising funds for any volunteer organization.  If the group needs funds the adults should find a way to fund the activity.

2. Children (girls) should not be put in a position of approaching strangers  to buy their products.

3. Cookies are very unhealthful and we are encouraging consumption of a poor food that only results in furthering the obesity in our country and among our children.
