Publisher's Description

In a materialistic world, it is important to satisfy the needs of our children without spoiling them.


If we meditate on Scripture, we find few passages that command us to be just like everybody else. In fact, Christ embodied the example of denying self and embracing his individuality. But even if we can accept that type of lifestyle, how can we expect our children to be happy and fulfilled if we deny them the pleasures of life?

How can parents find a balance between a monastic life and materialism? Are we living the sacrificial life of a devoted Christian or have we compromised for the sake of the kids? Do we meet the basic needs of our child or do we try to satisfy every want?
