As such, there is no pressure on us to buy presents. But sometimes when we receive

the value of toys when they are given too many toys. It also decreases their imagination

and creativity. They also do not learn sharing with other children.

Question: Some parents don’t spend much time with their child but instead give the child gifts as a way to show their love. Do you think this is good enough?

No I do not think this is good enough. The time been didn’t spend with the children is

more important then the gifts they give them.
