This week, Z learned how to buy at the sari-sari store by himself. I want him to learn about money so I am pretty lenient with giving him some coins. So whenever I want something I would just tell him to buy me this and he will go down to our apartment neighbor and a few seconds later come up with the right goods. I am pretty amused and wonder how he interacts with the vendor.
But today, I overheard his playmate telling him, "Z come let us go buy something." Z was busy playing and did not respond. His playmate repeated it two more times with no response from Z each time. Both of them were at our living room so I heard it pretty clearly. Z went outside and his playmate followed but before going out his playmate noticed the coins in the cabinets and proceeded to take it. I asked him what he was doing and he immediately put it back and said he did not do anything. His playmate is only 7 years old and I am disappointed he just took the money. I allow his playmates to come and go inside our house and I trust them not to take anything. To their credit, they have not taken any of his toys that I know of. It is also my fault, I better not leave money lying around just like that even if it is just some coins.

hi paula! thanks for the visit and the comment.

It's sad when we see other kids do things that disappoint us. but we can only do our best to help our own kids not to disappoint us. we do what we can where we can.
