When my first born was about 8 years old,
I remember during one of her play dates a child came up to me and said,
"Are you rich?"
I paused, smiled, looked him at him in the eyes and said, "Yes. Yes I think I am very rich."
(At the time, I am pretty positive our family did not have a savings account
and I was certainly not driving a Benz...)
Being rich (REALLY RICH) does not have to do with a bank balance or our net worth...
If you lost you job today, would you know how to be happy?
Would you be wealthy?
If kids don't get what they want, they can still be 'Happy'.
Teach Kids to Do the Same
Teach your child to be happy with less (in a material world)
