Want to teach your children a great way to wait for something that they want?
Then take a picture with your phone, or make a wish at a fountain!
It is a natural instinct for a child to wish for something that they see while shopping.
I devised two plans that usually work for my children, & they love it!
When in the mall or shopping at a store, I first explain what we are planning on purchasing. (This gives them a heads up to prevent meltdowns.)
Next, if they see something that they want, they can either take a picture with my phone, or make a wish at a fountain.
(Make sure that you bring plenty of change with you, lol!)
Another option, is my fave, to create a, “Wish List” on Amazon.com!
This list can be used for birthdays, holidays, or for special occasions!
In the world of instant gratification, it is imperative that we teach our children that they can’t get everything they see!
It may be difficult to deal with, but it will pay off in the long run!
