I'm looking for opinions, my kids have become major consumers and in turn I have cut them off from getting toys besides Xmas & Birthdays, However this hasn't helped, they still ask for a toy every day of their life and my response is, "nobody needs a toy every day of their life" "what are you going to give this year instead of get?" I'm very worried about their consciousness towards others and why it's better to give than receive. How can I teach them to be more giving? All they can think about is what they can get. It's driving me nuts and my opinion of them is disappointed. As a mother, how has anybody else dealt with this? I love them so much and it breaks my heart seeing them so greedy. I don't mirror this, I'm not out shopping all the time and buying stuff for myself, I can't afford it. In fact I've had to go without for the past 5 years due to unemployment. How can I change this direction in their lives?
