How can parents teach their children to reject materialist and consumerist values?

What are ways to encourage learning through making things and to learn science, instead of relying solely on consumer goods and the belief that buying kids things is a substitute for parents spending time with their children?
tynamite's avatar I can answer this question in one sentence.
By not buying them everything they want, because you can't afford it.


The point of my answer, is that children should learn from what they can't have, whilst trying to have what they should. When children have what's beyond their means, problems arise; but not if they only have what they want.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
