Kids who have so many toys are usually overwhelmed by them. They do not necessarily enjoy playing with a specific toy. Some seem unable to focus on one task at hand, are more hyperactive and never satisfied.
As parents, you need to be careful to the message you are transferring to your kids. Through buying so many toys and filling their room with excess, you are unconsciously telling your kids: the more you have, the happier you are….This is completely wrong.
Think wisely every time you buy a toy for your kids. Ask yourself: "Am I trying to make up for the lack that I experienced in my childhood?"
Take care not to project your negative feelings and issues unto them.
Teach your kids that EXCESS stuff does not make them necessarily happier.
Encourage your kids, by EXAMPLE, to be happy with what they already have rather than always seek to have more. Your kids need to see you happy and satisfied in the present, so they can feel the same way about themselves.
Build their imagination, creativity and intelligence through imaginative play, role play and some quality time with you.
Teach your kids to enjoy the present moment…

It is wrong to believe that psychotherapy is for crazy or sick people.
We all have personal experiences that have left some impact on our lives whether positively or negatively.
There should be no shame in seeking psychotherapy.
Relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem and other stressful situations can exert a lot of pressure on your life and make you feel trapped.
No matter how hard you have tried, you end up always feeling the same. You need not be alone. Seek change.
Adolescents’ behaviors reflect a lot of the chaos and tensions boiling within them.
Even though it is a turbulent time, adolescence is also potentially positive,
because one’s true identity can emerge when these internal tensions are approached and handled correctly.
It is wrong to believe that if your child is not causing you any trouble, then he or she is doing okay. You children depend on your attention and awareness to changes in their emotions and behaviors.
You do not have to go through your difficulties alone. A support group can help you connect with other individuals facing similar issues or challenges.
