The Demands Of A Toddler

Toddlers are known for their constant demands. After getting what they demand, it is not long before they demand something else. The cycle of need and demand is never ending. From juice to pretzels to a toy, no matter what they have there is always something else that they need immediately.

If we replace juice, pretzels, and toys with new cars, bigger houses, and other material items, have we really matured from the time we were toddlers? Aren't we all still just toddlers when it comes to our "needs"?

There's a wonderful Australian aboriginal saying: "The more you know, the less you need." In light of your perceptive observation, maybe we could say, "The more mature you are, the less you need."

Very insightful.

This is why you should beat your children whenever the ask for something. Medieval style.

I like my toys and I am happy to admit it.
