Come On Now… Does Your Child Really Need Their Own Business Card?
Toddlers with business cards?
Well, I’m all for young entrepreneurs and encouraging children to learn from a parent’s home business, but business cards for toddlers? I don’t think so. Let children be children.
The Courier Mail reports that “growing numbers of parents are investing in business cards for their children.” The idea is that all contact details are in the one place. Commenters were not in favor, with one saying,
…and what happens when these cards fall into the wrong hands?? I wonder if these obsessive mummy’s have thought of that? It’s amazing I was able to make friends when I was little without a business card.
One toddler mentioned in the article “never leaves home without a supply of cards tucked in his nappy bag.” I can understand for a child, it could be a fun “grown up” thing to do, but as parenting expert Professor Matt Sanders says, “kids should be kids.”
