HTML HTML Forms Choosing Options Checkboxes

why is it that when i click the label the check box doesn't work, but clicking the box does?

Nick displayed that idea when you click a label for a input element the checkbox would activate. BUT im case that doesn't happen.

You need to add the the attribute FOR in the label element tag.

for = id name of the input type checkbox id=...

for is used to assign the label to the input type.

so needs to look like this:
<label for="shipping">Fast Shipping</label><br>
      <input type="checkbox" id="shipping" value="fast_shipping"><br>

      <label for="newsletter">Subscribe to Newsletter</label><br>
        <input type="checkbox" id="newsletter" value="subscribe"><br>
