What Childhood Toy Did You Want But Never Receive?
Nicole Dieker

This isn’t something I was denied, but something I’m denying my 11 year-old. He wants to spend ~$35 of his own money on a “custom” Lego mini figure. I think it’s such a terrible value, I won’t let him do it.

(I’m not sure I’m making the right decision though — kids should make their own money mistakes, right? The problem is he’ll probably never think it’s a mistake, so he won’t learn the lesson I want him to learn)

Perhaps he’ll write a Billfold post about this denial in 20 years!
