From the Top 10 Mistakes Moms Make with Their Exes by Sally Abrahms
You are wrong if you believe that your children will love their father more because he can buy your children more clothes, toys, and better vacations than you can provide. Love cannot be bought. Money and things do not buy happiness. Spending quality time with your child is far more important than buying expensive gifts. Your child may not remember that new outfit of clothes, but they will remember who was there to watch them score that touchdown, or who taught them how to ride a bicycle, or who was there to encourage them and provide guidance in dealing with their problems and concerns. Love your children, do not try to compete for them.
