There was a question on the Q and A board about our childhood and if we were raised with a frugal mindset. It looked like a lot of people that responded said that they if times were tough as a child, they didnt seem to mind. I'm wondering if our kids will feel the same way though? I mean, DS is only 1 but I feel like already he "doesnt have everything". Sure, he has the necessities and of course a lot of love but it seems like nowadays there is so much more that you feel pressured to get your child. That's why society needs to change what we value. There is no way I would buy DS everything even if I could afford it but I don't want him growing up resenting the fact that he didnt get "xxxxxx" or whatever. KWIM? Just a rambling though. DH and I are considering moving in a couple of years (once we are debt free) to the mountains where my IL's live. The values seem so much different there and I want to do what's best for DS's future. So that question touched a nerve with me. Just wanted everyone's thoughts.
