Im a mother of a 14 year old son, I think god so far he has turned out to be a great kid. He loves school wants to be a dentist some day. I have sent him to the usa to go to a better school there. I think, it helped that him and I have always had a great relationship. We could always talk about anything to each other. Have a great day there.

This is something that concerns me a lot as well. The quote you mentioned sounds right to me. Too much money can spoil them, and you need to spend a lot of time with them. Getting to know them, encourage their virtues and positive things, and advice them about the bad aspects of their characters. I believe I turned out a nice guy, so I really admire my parents for all they did.. I'm a little scared I won't be able to do it as good as they did it.

Kids are smart.. you just need to explain to them the situation. I believe you have to be honest to your kids and include them in conversation constantly. Listen to their opinion and respect it, teach them good values but be honest that no one's perfect, no one's a saint. Show them the real world but protect them until they can handle it themselves.

Hi friend, i like this quote and it is true enough, we must spend more time with our kids and less their spending to guide them in a good way, raising kid is really a challenging thing. We must teach a lot of good things to our kids in their childhood days. I will share some tips to turn out your children to be well.. Now a days kids and school students don't know the importance of the savings and spending their pocket money with unwanted things. As a parent it is our duty to teach the value of savings to our kids and guide them in savings. First of all we must save some money in a piggy bank in front of them and provide a separate piggy bank to them and suggest them to save a part of their pocket money in it. If they started this saving habit from their childhood, surely they will keep up it through out their life and understand the value of the saving. Don't suggest them to save all the money, just tell them to save a part of money and spend their pocket money in useful manner to buy their school needs. Don't encourage them to buy junk foods using the pocket money, if you find your kid is buying junk foods in their pocket money, suggest them to save that money in their piggy bank. As we know junk food is not good to our health, teach it to them and advise them to avoid junk foods and save this money for their useful needs. Buy a good presentation to them in the year end from their saving, and give it to your kid as a gift. This kind of activity will motivate them to save and they will save money to get gift for the next year. This activity will teach the importance of saving to your kid as well as they will enjoy their saving in a useful way with a nice gift.

That's quite true, I agree with you, we should spend more time to accompany with our kids, because it is the key period for them to form a harbit and character.

I am sorry friend, I wish I can agree with you. Although it is a very wise and full of wisdom quotation. If there is the right formula for best parenting, then there should be no more delinquent jubeniles, or children troublemakers. But that is so true in a way. Very idealistic, for me that's the right word. Idealistically speaking this should what good parenting is. I

I think there is a sense on this saying. By spending time with our children, they will be feel that they are being loved and cared for. They will see the value of relationship and the value of true i happiness rather than material things. We can monitor their activities and surely we can set a good example to them as they grow up. So in a way, they can grow to become a good and caring person.

Spending quality time with children is really important. Those kids are going to be the most problematic, who are sat in front of the TV, because mom and dad just don't have the time (or the patience?) to care about them... they get the money and everything, but not true love. But the money thing... if I could afford it, I would give everything to my children to make them happy. I wouldn't spoil them, but it's not that I'm going to have a really strict rule system for money and I'm going to make them live a poor life just to make them used to moneylessness. I'm going to buy them clothes, books, theatre and cinema tickets, if they'd like.

I think this quote makes sense. When your children are young, what they need most is love from parents , money can't buy that. I know many families don't have much money, but they love their children and they take good care of them, these children are happy. But still I know some rich families, they think they provide good condition for their children and their children should be happy, in fact , they are unhappy and they feel lonely. As they need love not money.
