What if I cannot afford to buy everything my child wants?

Don't Overcompensate!

Don't give in to your child's every whim. Single parents often times are guilty of giving that extra toy or candy bar to replace the missing parent,which tends to spoil their kids in the process. You can't buy love for your child so don't try. Give them lots of love which comes from giving of yourself, not your money to satisfy their every whim. Teaching them love, responsiblity and respect will take them a lot further in life than trinkets! Their unhappiness over not getting a toy or candybar will soon fade. The values you teach them will remain with them forever.
