In the larger picture I would like to ask " What are we teaching our children?"
Every thing they have electronically at least is toss- able and replaceable. On a larger picture with instant communications we are programming our kids to expect instant gratification and have things NOW.
I believe we need to have switch off technology days and we need to TALK about Values and Work Ethics and stop the throw away mentality from growing.
I see relationships that last a few years being celebrated as successes!!!!! Really.
Lets get back to some balance and basics here folks - please.
We are the example that our kids look up too, so maybe we need to be the best example we can be and be the teacher/director and adviser to our kids, to stop trying to buy our kids because we are sooooo busy or thinking our role is that of friend. We are parents and that is hard work, so do the work!
Lol yes went a slight rant...so happy to be back. Anyway lets do our part and maybe have more expectations around what we spend our money on and free up the landfills by letting the 'man' no we do not want to own and toss.
Have a fabulous day one and all
