She feels we should give them toys and games that we never had as kids. At Christmastime, we stack gifts knee-deep around the tree. I feel this is a mistake, even if we could afford to do what we are doing. What is your view on materialism in the life of a child? DR. DOBSON: I also have concerns about giving kids too many things, which often reflects our inability to say "no" to them. The child's lust for toys is carefully generated through mil- lions of dollars spent on "IV adver- tising by toy manufacturers. Their commercials are skillfully made so that the toys look like full-sized copies of their real counterparts. The little buyer sits open-mouthed in utter fascination. Five minutes later, he begins a campaign that will eventually cost his dad $14.95 plus batteries and tax. Suppose the parents are courageous enough to resist the child's urging. He is not blocked. Grandparents are notoriously easy to "con." Some would ask, "Why not? Why shouldn't we let our children enjoy the fruits of our good times?" I would not deny a child a reasonable quantity of things he craves. But many American children are inundated with exces- ses that work toward their detri- ment. It has been said that prosperity offers a greater test of character than does adversity, and I'm inclined to agree. There are few conditions that inhibit a sense of appreciation more than for a child to feel he is entitled to whatever he wants, whenever he wants it. It is enlightening to watch as a child tears open stacks of vrents at his birthday party or pernaps at Christmas- time. One after another, the expensive con- Notice of Public Hearing on Tax Increase The Clarendon CISD will hold a public hearing on a prolxsal to increase tax revenues from properties on the tax roll in _1994 by 8.18 percent.

The child's mother is made uneasy by this lack of enthusiasm and appreciation, so she says, "Oh, Marvint. Look what it is! A little tape recorded What do you say to Grandmother? Give Grandmother a big hug. Did you hear me, Marvin? Go give Grams a big hug and kiss." Although it sounds paradoxical, you actually cheat a child out of pleasure when you give him too much. Pleasure occurs when an intense need is satisfied. If there is no need, there is no pleasure. A glass of water is worth more than gold to a man dying of thirst. The analogy to children should be ob- vious. If you never allow a child to want something, he never enjoys the pleasure of receiving it. If you buy him a tricycle before he can walk, and a bicycle before he can ride it, a car before he can drive and a diamond ring before he knows the value of money, he accepts these gifts with little pleasure and less apprecia- tion. How unfortunate that such a child never had the chance to long for something, dreaming about it at night and plotting for it Clarendon ......... Auto ....... Supply 114 S.
