So, the little man has been using that clever brain of his to make himself some money.
The little man has always had a keen interest in money, then again who doesn’t?
So… The boy has come up with an ingenious plan to make some. His set up shop, yes you did hear that correctly. His actually set up shop in his bedroom.
Today he attended a school trip to Chessington World of Adventures and instead of spending the whole of his £10 treat money he brought home £7.50 (yes, I was amazed)! Following a trip to Costa coffee (don’t ask) he went to the shop across the road from our house and purchased £3.00 worth of mixed sweets. He then brought some plastic cups and emptied the contents of his sweets into a large ice cream container and the shop was then officially open for trading!
So… Just what was he selling? A cup of mixup for £1.00 yes… One whole quid. He sold me two cups for his siblings, his dad came round and brought 2 cups, his friend next door couldn’t resist and neither could his cousin! The little man has therefore made a whole £6 and he still has over half his container of sweets remaining. This means the little man is already over £2 in profit… The clever little sod.
My son already has big plans for his future and talks highly of people such as Richard Branson (his idol) he tells me that his going to make millions and I’ve now taken up using this to try and engage his learning and school attendance.
Life isn’t always easy when your child is on the autism spectrum but it also has far more up sides and this is truly one of them (even if it’s costing me a fortune buying sweets)!
