There is one very important lesson that needs to be taught to every child at an early age — no one gets money easily. This is what the father of 6-year-old Emmett wanted to explain when he refused to buy his son a bicycle for nothing. Then he did not know that this would push his son to start his own small business.

Baby Emmett asked Dad to buy a bike. But the father turned out to be not so simple and decided to teach his son a lesson, saying that he would not receive a gift just like that, but should earn it on his own. Emmett collected his old toys and put them up for sale. During the day, the boy earned $ 70, which would be enough for a new bike.
However, the next day, while walking, Emmett saw a fruit ice maker on sale. The boy asked his parents to buy him instead of a bicycle so that he could start his own business and earn more money. The parents agreed with only one condition: Emmett had to sell ice cream for at least one hour every Saturday. On the first day of sales, he earned $12, then $17, then $25.
Emmett is responsible for purchasing on his own. He started with one bag of ice and three syrups with different flavors, then increased the assortment to 10 flavors, and then to 21 at all. Besides, Emmett regularly pays "taxes" to his parents. The boy set out to save money for college, but he does not know that his "taxes" are already going to the college fund.
Social media users liked Emmett's parents' approach to parenting. Many have even adopted it.
