For me as a parent this could not be more true! My children grew up not being lavished in luxury. They learned how to budget and how to do without. When they were given something special they knew how to be thankful with grace. My kids turned out great! ♥
Do not tolerate being vilified. Distance yourself from those who seek to take underhanded jabs at you while maintaining their innocence. Such behavior barks of immaturity and a complete disregard for the feelings of others.
