Expose your child to a variety of experiences that are cost free. My child is an only child so sharing is important. We often have three friends over at once. It's a wonderful experience for all. It helps out the single moms and teaches sharing and appreciation. I also get my daughter to help me with my volunteer work so she learns to appreciate. The simplest and most beautiful things are free. We live in a material world. I we often walk by the lake and enjoy hearing the waves of the water. I point out the beauty of sunshine, the cheerfulness of birds chirping. Blessings to all...Hope this info was helpful
Thanks JulianneKind. I too am an only child and grew up with learning to appreciate the small things in life. I too had lots of neighbourhood friends around and was taught from an early age the importance of sharing.
I agree with you re your comments about nature- showing children and teaching children about nature is a great way for them to learn and appreciate the things around them- non material things!
