Do Our Children Really Need So Many Toys?
Do You Give Your Kids TOO much?
I am sure we all have had our moments, especially at Christmas when we just go overboard spoiling our kids with presents. It feels amazing to see those cute happy faces! However, Do kids really need so many gifts? There is a problem with children receiving too many presents and toys, and that is overstimulation. Then they also learn to not appreciate every single gift they get.
There is Such Thing As Too Much
Too much for kids doesn't take a lot. You can be a good parent and not give your children everything they want in the store. Being a good parent means knowing how to teach your kids appreciation and how to prevent over-stimulation from occuring.
Dont Encourage Tantrums!
Are You Over Giving?
When your child tantrums in a store, do you end up giving in with a toy?
Are You Over-stimulating Your Children?
I am sure every parent has noticed when you give your children a lot of gifts at Christmas time, they seem overwhelmed and can’t even play with every one. Sometimes, they hardly notice some of the toys. That is because they are overstimulated, they don’t need that many! Having a few good toys would make children happier than having so many that they become overstimulated. Children also need to learn to appreciate what they get and what they have. That means everytime you walk in a store, they shouldn’t learn that they get a toy just because they go to a store. We have to teach our children less is better! Not because its cheaper, but because it truly is. Stop the tantrums and get your kids to behave because they are not overstimulated with toys and have learned to not expect them. Positive reinforcement should be used in moderation as well as gifts.
Make Your Children Happy the Right Way!
Children do not need expensive toys to enjoy life. They will love you more for engaging them in better activities, then just buying them toys any time they ask. Not only will they be more well behaved, but they will appreciate what they have. They will be able to play outside, spend more time doing educational activities, and learn that tantruming will not get them what they want.
