Commercials are one of the biggest reasons our children have the urge to splurge. We live in a world of consumerism where the consumer is king and having choices is a must. To confront commercials, go for these 4 simple steps:

1) Watch a commercial together with your children
2) Teach your children the difference between “WANTS” and “NEEDS”
3) Discuss with your children how most commercials are created to turn wants into needs
4) The more we let wants become needs, the more we succumb to commercials, the more impulse spending we do. We end up poorer by buying things we want but don’t need. (Ref: IDEA 002. “The Groovy Guide To Parenting Gen Y & Z”)
