Every parent wants the best for their children.
But at what expense does “the best” come?
When it comes to material things do you provide your child with the best of everything all the time? I have no problem with someone desiring the best of everything. Even material things! In fact, it could be a virtue. The problem is when “the best of everything” is given to children who do little or nothing to acquire the best.
When we give our kids the best of everything, materially, all the time, without requiring that they have any skin in the game themselves it causes problems. What incentive does that give them to attach “reward” to actual “achievement”? How does it help them grow into appreciative and independent adults? Wise parents see the end game when raising their kids. They see a God-fearing responsible adult in progress.
