In planning activities for your children, don't try to outdo or outspend the other parent, especially since one of you may have a very limited income. This is just another way of trying to buy a child's love which is wrong. Give your children an opportunity to love YOU, not your money. Spend time talking with your child, playing a game of catch or even playing a board game. Get to know your child and what he/she is interested in—something you can't do if you spend all your time at amusement parks or in the mall. Your child needs YOU, not your money.
