  • No way!! If she's really cooperative and patient during the trip, I may offer her a "ring pop" sucker at checkout.

  • My children rarely get a new toy except for their birthdays(both in June) and for Christmas. Maybe once or twice a year besides those days. We do however buy a lot of books.

  • Absolutely not! The more you buy the more they expect... They need to earn what they get unless its x-mas or birthdays... Our boys love to go to the library...

  • Nop I didn't. Mine are grown. Kids need to understand that they will not always get what they want in life. That money does not grow on tree's. That what you want and what you get in life is to different things.

  • My son is 12 now so no. But when he was little he got something EVERY time we went to the store. My husband would tell me to stop it already! But i just couldn't stop! And he did not turn out spoiled at all.
