This is DD's big gift for Xmas. She has proven herself this year that she can take care of her things and be careful with them, and that is a main thing that I've told her she has to learn if she wants anything electronic ( as in Ipod, or an Ipad ). I went to get the mail today, and saw my neighbor. She came over, and we got to talking about all the holidays coming up so quickly, and she said she didn't know what she was going to get her kid's for Xmas. I told her that I knew of one thing I was definitly getting DD. She asked what it is, and I told her. I'm getting her a tablet, with a case. Her reaction?
Why would I get my child THAT for Xmas?!
She says DD is too young for it, but I don't think she is at all. Like I said, she has proven to me that she can take care of her stuff, and be careful with it. DD is 8 years old. I told her the same thing I just posted here, and she just laughed it off, and said that she would never get her kids something that expensive and breakable. We talked a bit more, then she left.
I feel like if you teach a child to be careful with things like that, and take care of them, then they can have things like that. Apparently, she didn't agree with the reaction she had.
What is the big thing you are getting your kid(s) for Xmas?
