I don’t understand parents who thinks their children should be taught to beg from strangers.
I find it especially odd to see a new SUV let out a child in front of my house and the child then asks me for money to pay for his or her hockey team or whatever. I paid for the activities my own children participated in — and I was coerced into buying candy and cookies for my boss’ children — but I can’t imagine sending my children to beg from strangers.
Maybe I have self-respect and I wanted my children to respect themselves as well. Today a child came to my door begging for money for a parent’s WWCC raffle. So very sad.
