I agree, Farnoosh! But it wasn’t my sister that was getting him all the gifts — it was all their friends!

I think raising children not to be selfish or spoiled in a developed country — with access to so much technology and convenience — must be extremely challenging. I’m not thinking about kids right now, but if I ever started a family, homeschooling, exposure to raw nature, and frequent world travel would be an absolute requirement for their education!
