My daughter 17 fuses because her friends always have the newest electronic devises and some are poor. I'm sorry but I can't validate buying a three hundred ipod, cell phone, or spending more on a personal lap top for her. She says we're poor and even those who live in poor conditions and buy used clothes because they have to have these things. Are there others out there that don't feel their teen or child needs to have these things? She recently got a go phone, before we shared a cell phone.
It is a learning lesson for them. My 13 yo son just got and iPod Nano. Everybody else in town has an iPod Touch. I tell him I don't care and those families are not teaching their kids the value of a dollar. Regardless of financial status, everybody wishes they had just a little more money, and they always will. They might as well learn to deal with it now as children.
