I've seen this happen quite a lot at my work, ill see kids shopping all by themselves and are given like a $20 bill or more and just have them do their shopping while the parents wait in the car.

Well what's the age of the kid? This sounds like a great idea haha as long as they're not like 4 or something. People are so fucking PC It's annoying. There's so many times I've been lazy and sent my kid to do shit for me, she's not at the shopping age yet but I'd prob do that when she's older. Right now she just grabs stuff for me like a glass of water or the laundry out of the machine. 1, kids like that responsibility feeling. 2, you work, clean, run errands, Dr's appointments etc. They can help out from time to time. I used to do shit like that for my mom, run and grab her Avon order down a few blocks away, drop off her mail in the mail box, go to the 711 to pick up stuff for her. I was 9/10 when I would do that for her and *gasp* I'd go by myself.0

I've never heard of such thing before but as you say it I find that really good parenting. Kids learn how to handle money, buy things they need maybe get to buy a treat for themselves aswell, and they learn to socialize at the counter while paying. Good parenting for sure. Ofc the parent chill in the car but the point of the whole thing is generally good.0
