I did as a kid. Have you ever let your children run one? I would have until I read this story. This scares me to death and has changed my mind. What is the world coming to? little girl in Indiana chasing down a man named Steve Tryon who, cops say, robbed her lemonade stand of its entire $17.50 kitty. http://blog.trutv.com/dumb_as_a_blog/2008/06/mans-lemonade-s.html This man is sick!!

After hearing about this, would be very skeptical of having one.. Why does people have to be so cruel in life? this makes it hard for others to just enjoy the most simplest things.. What a shame!

No, I have never had a lemonade stand before. We really didn't live in the kind of area to have one, well and sell it anyhows. We mostly lived in the country or the houses were way to far apart to really even consider having one. It would have been a nice experience though. That is awful thng to happen to the child. She should have had a adult out there close enough so that something like this wouldn't happen. If no adults are about never know what bad things could happen and watching from the house isn't really a option either because it still doesn't give them enough reaction time. I am sorry o hear things like this is happening, shame someone thinks they have to steal hard earned money off of a kid.

I remember helping out a friend of mine with her stand once. It was actually a Kool-aid stand not a lemonade stand. She did not make much money at it. It takes a really creep to steal money from a little kids lemonade stand.

I did as a kid but we never sold anything. It was fun to have it with my neighbor though. We lived in the country and did not live close to the roadway where it could be sold. We didn't have much traffic on our road either and if we did, people would not stop on that road at all. My daughter has never had one either because of places we have lived. I believe I head this story on the news or something. I live in Indiana.

I have never had a lemonade stand if I did then it would have been easier for people to steal from me because of where I live. I heard about this story a while ago here in mylot and I was disgusted when I read this. This lazy dumb a*s can't get a job and has to steal from a little girl! That is just disgusting.
