Kids go through phases - something I learned here before experiencing it with my own kids - so first of all, don't stress about it: this too, indeed, shall pass. "Nipping it in the bud" is not the right approach, in my opinion, especially since kids grow up and then at times seem to regress, so to speak. Our son started having night fears when he was 6 and didn't want to go to sleep without us in the room, whereas he had done so without any problem for years before). Our pediatrician told us very wisely that our son's fears were unreasonable, but that they were nevertheless real. What we did in the end was to do nothing, i.e. we stayed in his room until he fell asleep (reading the iPad in the dark, or watching a movie with headphones). A few months later, the problem was gone. [ Reply | More ]

This is typical of a child who has been taught to value things and whose parents readily purchase things for them. The amount of clothing you are describing is completely unnecessary and out of control. Most adult women don't own 60 pairs of shoes and 6 North Face coats. [ Reply | More ]

Fake. How can a kid have 60 pairs of shoes? I don't think I have 20 pairs of shoes and I'm a grown woman. I also don't know grown women that have six down coats. If private I might believe you but homeschool and these values don't gel. [ Reply | More ]

If this is real, then you (or whomever is doing the buying) has a serious shopping problem. You can't blame this on the 11yo. The situation was created by an adult, who failed to say "no" after two coats and 4 or 5 pairs of shoes. The 60 pairs of shoes is mind-boggling. [ Reply | More ]

The question isn't if your DD is normal for wanting to go shopping, the question is why are you buying her SO MUCH at that age? [ Reply | More ]

No not normal. My DD (11) likes clothes and shopping (loves her North Face coat) as much as anyone but a few times a year is plenty for her...there are lots of other things she likes to do besides shop (and we both find it efficient to do some of her shopping online) .this weekend I mentioned a store she liked was having a sale and she said she had plenty of clothes thank to all she got for Xmas. (VBA I guess, sorry) [ Reply | More ]
