She looked at the note in disbelief. Who could've written a letter to her 5-year-old son? What did they want? Opening it and reading carefully, she reread the same line, over and over again. Then, she started to cry. Pulling herself together, she snapped a picture of the letter and posted it to Facebook. She wanted everyone to know what this man had done.

Words are powerful. They can heal, soothe, and inspire, but they can just as easily be used to harm and humiliate. The words we utter have a huge impact. It’s why you can never be too careful, especially if you’re a parent. In fact, any mother under these circumstances would have been shocked to find that a stranger wrote a letter to their child. So, getting to the bottom of this was exactly what she did, and you’d do the same in her place. Protecting children from things like bullying, is every parent’s mission objective.

Adam Houssami was 5-years-old and lived with his family in Dearborn, Michigan. One particularly hot summer's day, he decided to set up a Kool-Aid stall to make some extra cash for the summer holidays. He thought that if he sold each cup of Kool-Aid for 50 cents, he would soon have a moderate amount of pocket money.

Extra Cash

It’s wonderful seeing someone so young wanting to embark on their very own business venture. A summer business can teach kids the value of earning and saving money, which is an invaluable life skill. So, Houssami’s Kool Aid stand was a great way to learn about money management and earning a profit. After all, money is what makes the world go ‘round. But it was also important for him to remember to have fun in the process.

Adam's mother encouraged his entrepreneurial venture and said that he could set up a stall on the pavement outside the house. There were bound to be passersby who would want a cold drink on a day as hot as this. But Krista never expected anything out of the ordinary to happen that day.
