My kids don’t beg for toys and I realized it’s because they never get to see commercials(r/Showerthoughts)
I make them buy their own. I pay them to clean their stuff and do various little chores.
My five year old just bought a 50 dollar lego set that he’s been agonizing over for weeks. It was fun watching him not buy things…We went in when he had 16 bucks, and he agonized over a 15 dollar set…Then decided to save. Then we went in when he had 30 bucks and he agonized over a 29 dollar set…Then he decided to save. He really wants one of those hundred dollar electric lego train sets but that amount of money is just impossible with his current allowance (months and months).
Still I was proud of him. He did good.
