WATCH: The Mothership Ep. 2 — Does spoiling our kids at Christmas do more harm than good?
Is Christmas putting huge pressure on Irish families?
Introducing, The Mothership; Ireland's first parenting panel show, brought to you by HerFamily. Over the coming weeks, we'll be bringing the issues that matter most to Irish familes to the table.
On this week's episode we're asking, are we spoiling our kids too much at Christmas?
Watch the full episode here:
In this episode we're asking, how much should we be spending on Christmas presents for our kids? How do we teach them to value gifts, and not be influenced by how much their friends are getting.
We also look at the pressure Christmas puts on families — do you feel like you need to take your kids to every Christmas experience you see on Instagram? And are all these new Christmas traditions a great way to make memories, or simply a money-making exercise?
We'd love to hear your thought in the Facebook and Instagram comments. Are we spoiling our kids too much?
