Are the Girl Scouts Getting Lazy?

Today, I received this flyer in the mail. I remember when the Girl Scouts would go door-to-door selling their cookies. It was a way of teaching young women to be entrepreneurial. Then their parents started doing the job for them, selling the cookies to co-workers, and the emphasis seemed to shift from teaching children basic business skills to generating revenue for the organization. Now, the cookies are being sold online. Are the girls even involved anymore?

153Mom of some young Girl Scouts. We are told not to let girls sell door to door anymore for safety reasons. So girls will sell to family and friends but seldom go to the doors of strangers anymore. Sorry! But I swear it is not laziness :)
