    Yes, my 9 year daughter seems to love learning to wrap. I'm trying to ease her into it, make it fun and not put any pressure on her. So far she knows proper cleaning, how to position and mark for placment, basic squeegee technique and how to watch the film as she works. She is doing pretty well I think. :Big Laugh

    That's awesome! I can barely get my 15 year old daughter to lift a finger.

    Great way to instill pride and work ethic! And I bet if she sticks with it, she'll be damn good as a teen..

    Good job, my mom started me off with weeding when i was 12, by fifteen i was removing old signage and installing. So its true that gave me alot of pride to be productive.

    My first exposure to the biz was scrubbing toilets & sweeping floors. Next step was Spraylat duty on pan faces... ah, the good ole' days.

    Wrapping is definitely more fun!

    Both of my kids help me. My daughter loves to strip vinyl off of vehicles (weird I know but it works for me). They both like the money and I like that they buy their own clothes and things.
