My 8 year old son is unbelievably greedy. He seems to feel entitled to everything on the planet. This is something my husband and I have always tried to avoid, focusing on family and non-material things, from the time he and his little sister (6 years old) were born. It doesn't seem to have sunk in with him. He pitches a fit every time I go grocery shopping because I didn't bring him a toy. I can't remember the last time I bought him something "just because". We play a lot of games as a family, and spend a lot of time together, with one-on-one time with each kid. DD is fine with it all, but he wants, wants, wants.
He gives me a list of things he wants literally daily.
My only thought is, could it be tied to his ADHD, ODD, and OCD?
Any ideas to help get him past this??
