2 . Have you ever thought about running lemonade stand (货摊) to make money? Sixth-grader Jamaria Crump has. She has been very successful at it, too. It took the 11-year-old one year to build her lemonade stand to earn money for those in need.
Her business, Lemon Topia, is a hit, which her teacher said was surprising. She makes pies, cakes and cookies besides lemonade.
Jamaria built LemonTopia herself with the help of Mom. “I’m a teacher and had no time to help her at first. So she had begged for a lemonade stand for a year or two before I let her do it.” said Jasmine Hall Jamaria’s mother.
Jamaria’s school announced a baking sale in 2016 that was a perfect chance to try out Jamaria’s plan for a lemonade stand. Jamaria made cookies and cakes. After the baking sale, she kept selling at school and community events Now she has her own business at a street market.
Of course, Jamaria pays for her own costs. She has to buy the materials and also pays her mother for rides and working for the stand. Hall says Jamaria does not like the cleaning up. “I make her wash all of her own dishes. That’s a constant battle.” Hall said.
The lemonade business can have its ups and downs. “I’m very proud of her for sticking with it.” said Hall. She wondered if Jamaria would get bored and stop. But that hasn’t happened.
Doran Brown, Hall’s friend, says Jamaria is a success in Baltimore. “She is adorable (讨人喜爱的). She is running her own business to help others.” he said.
In fact, Jamaria dreams of studying in Paris to be a dessert cook. For now, she bakes and sells her goods. She is turning LemonTopla into strong starting point for a sweet future to help others.

3 . I don’t post recognizable pictures of my children on social media. I don’t use their names. I don’t put anything out there that will be really embarrassing for them in later life.
The reason for not posting pictures is that I feel a person’s pictures should be his or her own. It’s not good for me to push my kids out into the wilds of the Web before they’re ready, and understand what it all means.
When the time comes, they’re more than welcome to use social media. But for now, I’m happy to give them a degree of separation until they can make a choice for themselves.
This has meant extra efforts on our part when it comes to making sure that kids don’t get accidentally caught up in the Internet, because the schools where they learn, like so many others up and down the country, post their pictures to social media.
However, my husband thought I was overanxious and asked me a question about its advantages. And having thought about it for while, I’m not 100 percent sure if there are any.
But I could list the disadvantages: the time it takes to manage an account, often by a teacher, meaning extra work; the unavoidable difficulties in safeguarding.
It’s great to see the kids doing their things in schools but my worry is about the use of social media that doesn’t give anything back to the kids, and in many ways, just turns them into another way to gain clicks. I want more than that for them.
【小题1】Why is the author unwilling to post her kids’ picture online?

【小题2】What’s most schools’ attitude towards social media?
