does he lose temper. He believed in pleasing them by fulfilling their demands.
I was against this and made him understand that he is pampering them and we
will have tough time to handle them in future. Initially, he did not pay much
heed to it but my constant effort changed his thought and he decided to back
rules to follow to show them the VALUE OF MONEY.
HOW IMPORTANT MONEY IS.
- Never fulfil all demands: The first n foremost
rule is never fulfil all demands of children else they will not understand its
value and how tough is to earn a good sum. Side by side, they will learn the
PRIORITIES OF LIFE.
My Experience: I was brought up in joint family where my Mum didn’t had
the power to tame me and my all demands
Consequences: Till today if my demands are turned down, I am hurt at

won’t understand the sweat behind the flowing income but will be ready to spend
extravagantly. Parents too have to check their expense style. If you are
extravagant in spending then you can’t ask your ward to be thrifty.
occasions and when they do well in studies or maintain discipline during
vacations etc. Appreciate them & reward them by giving money to buy the
things they love to buy or the parents can gift them that their children love
to have. Even you can gift them a pot of flowers and make them responsible for
watering and taking care. This way VALUE OF CARE will be instilled in your
learnt from my life experiences.
