Kid's Rechargeable Motor Bike

We have no plan on buying this one, it just happens that his cousin's grandpa coming from abroad went home with Kiddie Motorbike for his first ever grandson. The next day, parents of another cousin from the neighborhood was left no choice but to buy after their 5 year old son throw tantrums envying the other. And when my child's turn to see the neighborhood cousins' motor bikes:

The result?


My B has been using this one for 2 months already. We bought it from Robinson's Dept. Store for 6k  last November before my birthday with hopeful wishing that it would last for years... 

Someone commented that "Hindi lahat ng gusto dapat ibinibigay" but still, I don't categorize myself as spoiler nor do i consider my child as spoiled brat. At his age, its really hard to explain things, impose rules or set limits correctly and consistently considering I'm a working mom, I'm not around all the time. And when the time I'm with him, as much as possible I don't want him to  remember just the spanking and my undying speech of lectures (sometimes called nagging) of  things or the do's and dont's.

Something inside me was saying that "he's my unico hijo" for now and I don't see anything wrong on giving him nice things and that's  I wanted to see where my hard-earned money had gone. Anyways, I also make sure that I set aside some amount every pay day on his savings account. (hmp!)

Hubby says that its not like we're giving 'everything', coz actually we cannot afford it all, we're not that well-off . We're just providing the best that we can and was trying to discipline him at his young age. We're also aware that any behavior of pampering and spoiling can affect later on until his older age creating interpersonal difficulties, so are we nuts to allow him to have such distress?

Oh, well... what do you think, have you been experiencing  the same? Pls share... I would love to read such stories...

  7. We have the same prob sis. But the only difference is it is my hubby saying that I'm such a spoiler especially in terms on Aj's tantrums and wants. Since I became a WAHM, he says na para lagi ko daw binibigay ung gusto ni AJ. My hubby's is the disciplinary type of parent kaya I'm just balancing my son's environment by being a loving and caring mom that Aj can turn to pag napapagalitan siya sa dad nya.. hayy.. hirap no sis? I'm not also sure if I'm doing the right thing din..

    btw, with the relaxing chair we got it from Robinsons, naka sale sya nung Christmas sis. We bought it for P1,500 lang sis ;)
