This 10-Year-Old Wants An iPhone 11, A MacBook Air, And Rs 2.9 Lakh For Christmas

Sometimes, children can't tell the difference between necessities and luxury. And this little asked for more than just an iPhone 11 in her wishlist.

Parenting has never been an easy job and different times pose different challenges to parents in building their kids’ behaviors. And today, one of the biggest problems they have to deal with is kids asking for expensive stuff. Meanwhile, it’s another challenge to help them tell necessity from luxury, an iPhone 11 for example.

And recently, a couple from Pittsburg was shocked over the Christmas wishlist their daughter made, who is only 10 years old.

A Twitter user with the account @a_johson412 shared a handwritten wishlist containing 26 items, all of which seem expensive. The little girl listed a MacBook Air, an iPhone 11, Gucci sliders, a Chanel purse, a real bunny, as well as $4,000 (Rs 287,355) besides all those luxury things.

From a study conducted by Chicago-based University of Illinois, the escalation of materialism among young people is concerning as when they have escalating desire to own material possessions, their school grades and intrinsic motivation will reduce.

Luckily, there are still a few things on the list that remind us she’s still a little girl.

The study states that due to the huge amount of marketing targeting young consumers, this generation turns out to be the most materialistic we have ever seen, threatening their emotional well-being and healthy development.

The couple must have been so shocked at the demands their baby girl put down in the wishlist. And they need to keep an eye on that and concentrate on teaching them the value of minimalism, humility, and gratitude from an early age.​
