I got into a conversation today with students over the difference between "wants" and "needs".
It all begun with one bemoaning the fact that he did not receive an allowance.
Can you imagine?
No free money from Mom!
What will he do?
I commented that he probably got more from his parents than if he had an allowance because if he had an allowance they would expect him to pay for his "wants".
Then we had to decide what their needs are and what their wants are.
Poor kids! They could not tell me the difference!!!!!
I finally had to tell them what they needed to sustain life.
I WANT to go to the movie and I NEED money!
HOW do you argue with that logic?!!!!
