When Kids Want Too Much: Curing a Case of the "Gimmies."
Villaire, Ted
Our Children, v27 n3 p4-5 Nov-Dec 2001
Asserts that as parents spend less time with their children and try to assuage their guilt by buying children things, the many effects of materialism must be prevented. Children need help understanding that spending time with friends and family is more rewarding than spending money. They need to be taught the strategies of media literacy while learning the pleasure of giving and the wisdom of careful spending. (SM)
