hi
yes your kids can be engaged in business with your guidelines and monitoring. You can also get then some kidpreneur books to equip themselves with knowledge about the same. Check out more info here>>>https://bit.ly/3bEYgJ3

Marty, my brother and I once started our own thing in our dad`s garrage, I was 16 at that time and my bro 14. We were customizing skateboards and selling services to friends at first and then to friends` friends and so on. At that time our parents were not too supportive, they just didn`t care much. We had our business for a couple of years and earned enough for our needs that time but unfortunately our thing never left the garage walls. Looking back now I see that maybe if our parents shared interest in our service and hepled us out financially or even morally there is quite a chance that our Skatomization would be live now. So I for sure rwcommend you supporting your kids but also remember not to take their thing over, your are just an observer who helps, not more, they only need support.

There are few people who know from a young age what they can do with their life.

if he wants to open a business, let him do it.

it can bring him new feelings, new opportunities and so on.

Good luck to your boy!

It is very good that your children want to do what they like and to earn some money. Nowadays everything is possible, some children are making millions. So, just give the sources they need and support them all the time, even if they make some mistakes. I am always helping my children when they need and I am very happy that I can give them a helping hand. Recently, they started to sell some toy guns, I was the first buyer, bought full auto nerf gun because it is my favorite one. Sometimes I help them with delivery, but sometimes we test together the guns they sell.

It's amazing that your child is interested in business. I think this is a really good idea, because in this way he will be able to know the value of money from an early age!
