Antidote Frugality Altruism Generosity

"Gimme, gimme, gimme!"

Dear Dr. Borba,

I'm hoping you can help me with my nine year old: he's become so greedy! I've tried to always make him happy and give him what the other kids have, but I think it's backfired. Instead of being satisfied, he just wants more! And he always wants more than anyone else. Now that I created this greedy, selfish monster, can I change his attitude?

"But I've got to have a clown and a pony to ride on at my birthday. That's what Tiffany had." "Sure, I have six pairs, but the more shoes the better!" "Grandma gave me only fifty dollars for Christmas!"
