Avoiding expensive hobbies for the kids

This topic is similar to the previous one which is the spending of the child for non-essential items. A neighbor whose son is into surfing had bought a motorboat. That is so the son can brag to his friends when they go to the beach for the surfing. Think of the big expense of the motorboat. What followed was a jet ski which was also expensive. After a year the son went abroad to continue his studies in the US. The parents are now thinking of selling the motorboat and the jet ski. That is good to sell because the value diminishes as time goes by.

If you have the money to make your children's childhood memorable why not. The best thing is to spend on things that make sense and within your means. There is no way you can buy all that stuff if you can't afford to pay your next bills or your children's school fees.

Seems like that neighbor went all out on those toys! But I get it, we've all got our moments of indulgence. Selling them now makes sense, better than letting their value drop further. Wonder if they'll reinvest in something else fun or more practical. 🚤🛥️

In your story, I see parents who try to give the best to their child.
