Hi there guys,
Im in need of help in teaching my daughter a lesson in appreciating what she has and to think of others.
As a mother I have always wanted the best for my children and wanted them to have nice things. After yet another disagreement about cleaning her room I explained to her how lucky she was to have what she owned as many others have way less. My daughter did not show compassion her response was to just chuck the toys out as she wasn't cleaning her room and she would be fine with it as eventually dad and I would buy her new ones!!
Suffice to say I was gutted by the statement. We are a military family, our kids use their manners, are respecful to elders and work hard for a lot of what they own. I'm at a lost at how to tackle this problem. I want her to volunteer but she's too young but I need her to understand how lucky she is, to cherish what she has and above all else sympathize for those who do not.
This was the most shocking statement out of three last night but they are too long to write I thought I would give you guys the jist of the story. Anyways please let us if you have any ideas I would love to hear them
