I used to believe they should do something on thier own or ask to be taken out to buy a parent a gift. Now with grown kids I wished I would of taken more time in teaching them about buying.

I see in today social so many kids are thinking of thier own self, it seems to be a world of "Me" so if we do not teach them more about doing it, how will they learn. I feel now if we start teaching them when they are smaller then they will learn and do it more as they grow up.
I know with my gkids, I did teach them to buy and they are much better at doing things that other kids thier age.
so again I believe it is what we teach them, and don't wait for them to always do it on thier own for that might not happen.
