For what it was, a birthday gift, it was useful and the cost minimal: you canít ask for a better balance than that. We have a challenge, to find perfect gifts - beautiful, practical, functional - while spending the least amount of money. No wonder he is a misunderstood child, I have inculcated him with my frugal and parsimonious values and, when he succeeds in this self-burdened challenge, I feel an overwhelming sense of pride. When he chooses thoughtful gifts and spend very little of his money, I see my parenting skills have borne fruit, and know he will survive.
