When my kids want something they will pester to the point where it feels like we're being bullied. Add to this the fact we often feel overwhelmingly guilty telling them no because we know they are only asking for things all other kids there age get to have.
The problem? Every time we tell them yes, what they asked for is broken or destroyed. We just lost our 2nd computer today (we had 2 now just this one, dh built them) I know that other kids get to go on the computer all the time and nothing happens, but whenever we let them it never fails that something goes wrong.
We feel bad telling them no, you can't use the computer because you haven't shown you can use it the right way because we also know that other kids get this and it's not fair of us to deny them.
This is happening to other things as well, I almost want to make them follow me everywhere, but I know that would be wrong too. It just doesn't seem fair.
