You see; the price tags of these gadgets, toys and electronics are getting more expensive each year. Getting them the desired toy may mean getting yourself deeper into credit card debt. This is not the position you want your children to be next time.

Understandably, most parents will relent and give in to the wimps and desires of their children. There is definitely much joy looking at their happy faces, as they un wrap the gifts under the Christmas tree on that morning. Many parents will feel that this is worth it.

According to some experts, what children really want is the parents' time, love and affection. It is something unique and special only the parents can give. No money and gifts can ever replace it.

You may have provide for most of the physical needs you children needs but you may have neglected them while putting away many hours into you work. Yes the money is important but your children also need you. The key to all these is to find a balance in your life. Carve out some time where you can spend time with them.

There are many activities that you can do together. Try working on projects with them like building a tree house together. It is an inexpensive activity. It could be anything like learning a new sport or hobby. The idea is to spend some time with them.

Another idea is to save the money that you wanted to spend on gifts on the children. Teach them the idea of investing and get them interested in savings. This is a very good way to learn the art of money making.

So remember, whatever you do, you are the best gift that your children really want this Christmas.
