Hi! Newbie tianer reporting. Mummy of P2 and K2 boys. Like to get some help on how to make my P2 boy stop accepting playing cards from friends. Thank you.

He is so fond of the cards. It started with my best friend bringing her boy and mine to the arcade one day last year and cards just continue to flow into the house. :( We have warn him not to take anymore from anyone. It did not stop until we confiscated all. Still in vain. :cry:

He has generous friends, why not?

What you need to watch out for is the kids sometimes lie that it is a gift but in actual fact they bought it from their own pocket money. My kids did that and after further probing, they own up. It is part of the growing up phase and we need to let them realize the right from the wrong. Happy parenting! :celebrate:

Very generous friends and neighbours. Chances from his own pocket is low, pocket money monitored.

I will suggest for you to use the incentive of bring him to the arcade, maybe once a semester (depending on your level of hate of the arcade), if he stop collecting it from his friends. In that way, he has something to look forward to and will resist the temptation of collecting from others. The temptation will always be there if he has classmate that frequent arcade.

If I cannot beat them, may have to "join" them. I am reluctant, but your idea may just work. Thank you!
