Happiness is not about what you own, or about the clothes you wear. It has nothing to do with what car you drive or how big your house is.
Happiness comes from within, and it comes to those who appreciate what they have in life.
When you give your children everything they want, they will grow up thinking they deserve everything. And what a rude awakening that will be when they have to go out into the real world.
Children who grow up in homes where everything is given to them grow up to be very unhappy adults.
Children need to learn that happiness comes from the way you live life, the choices you make, and the perspective in which you see the things that happen to you.
The best things in life are free. They can’t be bought or hung in your closet.
As parents, it’s your responsibility to teach your children how to enjoy life, and to appreciate what they have.
“The power of little things to give instruction and happiness should be the first lesson in life, and it should be inculcated deeply.” Russell H. Conwell
