Please don't take this wrong, but, is it really okay to expect a little kid to sell 1600 boxes of cookies?

I don't have any idea what the average Girl Scout sells. I just say that someone had posted that their little girl's goal was 1,600 boxes. This just seems crazy to me.

I remember having to sell stuff in high school, and I don't remember ever selling a dozen of anything.

Don't get me wrong, Girl Scout cookies are delicious and I'll probably get a dozen boxes before it's all said and done. But it's crazy to expect little kids to move this many units, even with the help of their parents.
