Running a business as a kid can teach you skills that will benefit you in the future. It can also teach you important lessons. These lessons include how to set and meet goals. They also include how to manage money.

Kids should not run a business. They should be focusing on school. That will expand their knowledge. Plus, kids who are running a business have less time to spend with family and friends. Kids should just be kids.
