a little lesson

The little man has been bugging us to buy him more games for his 3DS. Then he said he needs more games for his Wii. I said no while his father said he will think about it. And if that is not enough, he also told us he would be very happy if we buy him a headphone, a monster beats by dre, no less! I do not know where he got the idea that he can just keep on asking for material things and expect his parents to provide for whatever he demands from us. I have had talks with him and every time we did, he seemed to understand but then he watches a commercial on television and he does it again. I guess I will just have to keep on reminding him so it will get through to his head and the idea stays there. Of course, it does not help when daddy is so easy to be swayed to his way of thinking. Even with the odds against me, I will try to persevere. I do not want my kids to get spoiled. I want them to value things as they get them so if I have to, I will make them work for things they want. I just hope that the lesson will not get lost on them.
