How many times does it take for your child to ask before you give in? Does your child have a screaming fit every time you go to the store because he/she is not getting what he wants?
This is related to all the Christmas overindulgence. We can more than afford to give our children all the material things in the world, but we choose not. One it does the child more harm than good and two, it does society no good.

One of the things I choose to tell my children when they want something, especially when it's a toy that will only give them minutes of fun is. "I choose not to spend my money on that" Kids "want" a lot but I only get things I choose. Right now my boys want those hulk smash gloves and I dont want them to have them because 1 they will beat each other up 2 they will not want to play with them in two days then get bored with them. It simply that when you give into their wants you are doing more harm then good. They end up with sense of entitlement, yet do not work for what they get. If they want something at the very least make them earn it. Something that is age appropriate of course. Which a 2 can help you pick up the house, assist in doing dishes etc. Then they get something even better. I mean dont you feel good when hard work pays of and you get what you want. It;s no different with children
