Learn how to help your kiddos develop delayed gratification in an instant pot world. Children really need to learn how to wait – from education to employment, relationships to ministry, personal health to finances. Delayed gratification is a critical part of a mature, joyful life.
The other day my son got invited to a birthday party. Birthday parties for kids are rare where I live, it’s just not so common as it is the United States. Before the party, my son and I went to buy his friend a toy for a present. My son was so excited and on our way out he picked up a toy he liked, looked at me and just put it back down. He kept walking and I asked him if he liked that toy. He said “yes, mommy, but its OK, I know we don’t have extra money.” I said, “you know what, get it.” He was so happy, he squeezed me tightly in the middle of store. I think people were like “this mom never gets her kid anything.” Their probably right and that is OK, especially if I have a son who appreciates things the way he does. Check out these few ideas to get started teaching this essential attitude for your kids in life.
