Dr Gummer speaks to BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire to share her thoughts on this latest topic
Every parent loves seeing the look on their child’s face on Christmas morning when they come downstairs to see a big pile of presents – exciting new toys just waiting to be unwrapped – under the Christmas tree.
However, forking out for lots of gifts (especially if you have more than one child) isn’t necessary; we know most of it will end up in the back of the cupboard come January...
But there is a way to balance budgeting and gift-giving, by using the ‘four-gift rule’, which has been shared on a number of websites. You limit yourself to four presents for each of your children (and of course, it even rhymes):
- Something they want
- Something they need
- Something to wear
- Something to read
Dr Amanda Gummer speaks to Phil Upton to discuss the 4 Gift Rule and how it works coming up to the festive season
