Kids are always eager to try new things. They want to experience everything, including having their own business and earning their own money.

What better way to do this other than to sell lemonade in front of their home?

As loving parents, we want our kids to have the best experience. That is the reason we always support our kids with their ventures in life.

Melissa’s children, Chloe, Milo, and their friend Carly, started a lemonade stand. They spend hours decorating it as well.

There, was a big flower vase, a tray of cookies, a pitcher of cold lemonade, colorful plastic cups, and a pile of artwork.

There were three posters, all handmade. One is for the artwork with a colorful dragon on it. Then the other poster was for the cookies, which sell for $2 each. Of course, there was also a lemonade poster.

Unfortunately, it was raining and no one came.

Melissa was watching the children, and she knew she couldn’t ask them to clean up. They would be heartbroken.

The kids just sat and waited until a car parked near their home.

The man, Malik Cornist, went to the kids and bought lemonade, a cookie, and one artwork. Soon after, he bid them goodbye and went off.

As soon as Malik left, Carly looked at her friend’s mom with a big, sweet smile. The little girl was so happy!

Melissa felt thrilled that she recorded the beautiful moment. The three kids were smiling and their reaction was priceless. There was no need for words.

“I have never met Malik before. I was like, who was this angel? He bought everything they were selling. He was smiling and interested,” Melissa shared in her interview with CBS Mornings.

According to Melissa, the kids ran back inside and showed her the money they earned by selling lemonade.

They were so proud.

Now, Malik was doing his usual routine when a friend sent him a direct message. His friend asked him if he bought lemonade.

It confused him why his friend knew about the lemonade he bought.

To show her appreciation, Chloe drew another artwork for Malik. It was a drawing of a dragon drinking lemonade.

Isn’t that sweet?

Many people noticed Chloe’s talent and mentioned that she could sell her artwork. Melissa explained that she didn’t want to cloud her daughter’s creativity with money. She wants Chloe to enjoy what she is doing and feel happy with her creations.
