Do you buy your kids something everytime you go to the store?

If not how often do you buy them toys or games? I don't mean needs.

  • No, but that doesn't stop him from asking for something EVERY TIME we go to the store!

  • Most of the time when they go to the store they get a little something like candy or drinks. They get new toys way to much though.

  • Hells no. She needs to learn that life is not about getting neat things. That's a sure way to spoil a child.

  • Nope.
    If we provide them the very little in life then they will appreciate when they get that one good thing on their 18th birthday as we send them out the door...a swift kick in the butt....lol.

    Seriously, though. We save some money up about twice a year to spend on them for their birthdays, Christmas, new school clothes, and new summer clothes. In between, it depends on if we have extra money or not.

  • Not as in a toy. They seldom got toys, but sometimes they got a little treat to eat.

  • No! We buy for holidays and birthday, and the occasional toy sometimes, maybe two or three times a year. We do buy her a lot of books and stuff like that most times.
    She buys stuff with her own money that she earns every time we go somewhere. She's really good about saving half for the big purchases and blowing the other half on the "toy of the moment"

  • Yep. He's grateful for what he gets,and it makes me happy to see him happy. He's an only and has autism. I figure spoiling is par for the course!
