    I usually just buy the tickets myself or not worry about it as i couldnt be bothered selling them. I wouldnt let him door knock ever.

    I usually buy all the tickets, get family to buy them or send them off to work with hubby.

    What? Why doesn't anyone take their kids around doing fundraisers?

    I would just buy them, much easier for me as I could not be bothered going door to door watching DS.

    So me for it is a decision based on selfishness not safety concerns.

    Added- I have not had a child come to my door to sell anything in 18 years of living out of my parents home.

    We have kids knocking on our door quite often, it's cute. Their faces light up when you hand the money over (almost every house would in my neighbourhood)

    DD1 and DD2 go door to door selling guides biscuits once a year. DD1 puts on her uniform and DH goes along with them. They love it.

    I have always thought fundraising was just a part of being at school or in a community based organisation and we happily support the kids if they want to sell stuff in our neighbourhood. We have heaps of kids in our area and it's well supported.

    My reason is because I don't like to annoy the neighbours. It annoys me when ppl door knock selling things as I don't have the money (nor do I ever have change as i only use my atm card) and when it's a kid selling I feel worse having to turn them away and I can't do that to other ppl. I have 5 kids so it can end up being a lot, I just buy them or send them back unsold (and with all the raffle tickets I have bought over the yrs I have never won anything!) lol
