Families are an important part of the tradition, values and fun of Cookie Season. Here is how you can support your Girl Scout and help her get the most of the experience. Encourage goal-settingGoal-setting is an important life skill. She’ll go far if she knows how to set a high goal and reach it. Ask about her group’s goals and help her set personal goals. Help her fill her goals in on her order card and encourage her to talk about goals with customers. Support her salesShe needs you to be on her side as she develops the confidence to ask people for orders. Listen to her practice her sales message, arrange booth site sales at work, places of worship or other locations frequented by people who love Girl Scout cookies. Go with her to sell and deliver cookies.
Volunteer Her group is sure to need volunteers willing to chaperone booth sales, pick up cookies and more. Sign her up for COCO Cookie Command Center COCO is a safe website where girls can send emails requesting online orders from family and friends. She can learn about goals and track her progress. By sharing your email contacts, you can help her reach her goals in a way that is faster and more efficient for the whole family. Customers order nearly twice as many cookies online. (Girls still must deliver cookies and collect payment in person.)Practice safetyBe a good role model for safety and good decision-making. Help your girl understand the Girl Scout Safety Rules.
