My sister's kids were always given Name brand stuff when they did something good. Now when they feel the need to feel good, they go on a shopping spree to feel better. Problem is their credit card are maxed out, their husbands won't give them money now so they steal it from their mom or take things and sell them on Creigs List or to the consignment store so they can have money. I mean these are women in their 40's!
What's your take on it?

Being rewarded for doing good is something you'll always receive in life even when you get older. If you do good in school you might be able to be the line leader, when you get a job and do good at it you get a bonus etc... I think there is a difference in rewarding children with just material thing and nothing else. When children a young they drive on just getting their parents approval. I think emotional rewarding is not only more beneficial its also long lasting. If she's buying them things constantly when they are good and feeding that emotional needed or acceptance it could be that they fill the emotional need with buying things.
