Getting jealous?

December 1, 2012


Question:

My kid is always jealous to the things that other children have. How to solve this, I can’t buy him every toy in the world!

Answer:

Try talk to him, simply tell that you can’t buy everything that he wants and not a single parent can satisfy every single wish of their child. But you do try to buy him as much as your finances allow. Saying this try to really spend on a child according to you income, earning more – buying more and vice versa. Try to plan together your spending on a child for example “ we can’t buy you a cell phone this month but it will be possible in the next one thanks to me saving a little bit for this purpose”.

Please remember, that getting jealous is very common among the children with low self esteem, who are self uncertain. So you primary goal should be to improve the self esteem of your son.
