My 4 year old son is soon to graduate from his private nursery school,and as you can imagine its going to be a very emotional event especially for mums and dads but not for his dad as he is very reluctant to take any real interest in his son`s life unless he has been pushed to do so,so i wont be informing him of this event.what kind of present would you buy for a 4 yr old, who already has everything and since he aint old enough to receive a car,help as this is a new thing to me and makes me so proud to be his mum.

eyeswideopen agony auntWait I have another idea, why not donate money to your local food bank in his name? That way he can help some other 4 year olds that go hungry everyday.

How about instead of raising a child steeped in materialism you both go out to the park and have a picnic as his graduation from nursery school gift.

My own nephew of four has everything and he will be spoiled rotten. I keep mentioning this to his parents but they are addicted to buying stuff.

A child who has never learned to feel want is a child who is not really going to be prepared for the real harsh world that it really is out there.

I think you let yourself slip a bit there. 'ain't' is not the sort of slang you want to be teaching your little darling. 'Is not' is the proper way to say it.

smeedle agony auntDear god, what ever next, graduation from nursery school!

The world has gone mad, in my day you just went to school and got on with it, he is loved and cared for so should that not be enough, buying kids presents or treating them all the time teaches them that they can have stuff and it then does not become a treat just an expectaion.

Ive bought up 4 kids and they got presents birthday and christmas and they are all loved, cared for and that is all that matters.

Take care not to have a spoilt child as you have already said "he has everything" so what does he get birthday and christmas.

vix100 agony auntI didn't know there was such a thing as a graduation from a nursery school. You say he has everything - I take it you mean everything 'material' that he needs. I think the pride and love of his parent(s) is probably all he needs. I love the smile on my son's face when I tell him what a clever and lovely boy he is.
