People with kids (especially girls!!) how do you balance shopping for things you want/need with setting a good example about money and reasonable shopping habits for your kids? I have a 9 month old baby girl, Samantha, and she is already a purse snob. I'm only half joking. I gave her an old gap purse to play with because she is always after my coach bags, but she doesn't want the one I gave her, she wants the nice ones to chew on and take things out of. I love me some nice purses, but I also need to balance that with teaching her how to manage money, and how to respect a nice item (clothing, shoes, purses, toys, computers, whatever.) I'm also not looking forward to sharing my closet full of purses for dress-up games. At least not until she's old enough to appreciate my stuff and take care of it (when she's like 21?) Haha. How do you all feel about this? What happens when kids are older?
