We can observe when our children ask for every toy in the store. We’ll offer the warm, firm limit that it's not a toy-buying day, and acknowledge that this is difficult. Wanting and not getting is hard — even for those of us with mature, adult brains. These all-too-human lessons will be learned in good time, and will be best incorporated as we stay connected and loving — with ourselves, and our little ones.
