In many cases, even need! Unless, of course, talk about saving money. In order not to be considered the most greedy member of Alimero, I hasten to argue my opinion.
About my inspirer
I have a distant-relative relative who was the heroine of several topics. For example, about feeding children with valerian, as well as the absence of brains. Today she again became my inspiration.
Tatiana (name has been changed) constantly buys inexpensive toys for five-year-old son Misha: constructors, cars, action figures. For the boy trips to the store have become a special sport. He was not happy with the purchase. The main task is to get the mother to get the wallet.
Tatiana herself forgot when she bought herself beautiful panties or a new lipstick. A relative constantly complains about the holes in the family budget, but she spends money on rubbish. I asked why she would not give up thoughtless purchases. In response, I heard a whole rant about love for my son and the desire to please the baby.
Children need to love and delight. But! One of the main indicators of parental love is attention, not a pile of toys. You can save money and refuse to buy cars, but at the same time organize family entertainment.
My relative rarely reads fairy tales to the child, does not arrange joint games – there is not enough desire. But Misha is so inquisitive! He likes to listen to stories and chat.
I once offered him the game Beasts. Misha was supposed to portray the little animal referred to in verse. We showed how bunnies jump, butterflies flutter, elephants stomp. The kid was delighted! Half a day the boy went after me and offered to repeat the game. I do not remember how many times we depicted animals in a row, but it was fun.
If someone from the household tells an interesting story, Misha will be happy to discuss what he heard and ask dozens of questions. Tatiana rarely involves her son in conversation. She doesn’t see a problem in that a five-year-old kid plays computer shooters and action games for hours. The main thing is that he is full, dressed, sits in one place and does not play pranks.
Buying all sorts of rubbish, Tatiana expresses a child’s love and care. She complex, if she can not give her son expensive clothes or toys. At the same time, Tanya does not even think about what Misha really needs: another machine or a joint game.
While the child is small, parents form a circle of his interests and in fact choose joys for him. One kid is shoved in the eleventh typewriter, and for the second one they arrange a show in an improvised puppet theater. Which child will get more positive emotions?
I think, deciding to please the baby, you can save money, but not kindness and attention! Do you agree with me, dear participants Alimero?
