TBT: The Best Way to Spoil Your Kids This Holiday Season
“Just remember—buying them “stuff” won’t relieve your guilt for not giving them intangible gifts like your time and attention.”
The best way to spoil your kids is not giving them too many material possessions. Some of the wealthiest families I know, who’ve supplied their kids with trips and gifts galore, are also some of the healthiest families I know.
