My son won't accept any gifts from me. What do I do?
He told me not to get him anything on Christmas, and his birthday is coming up in a week. I asked him what he wanted and he said nothing, so I told him I'd just give him money, and he said he would donate it if I gave him anything.
What do I do? What do kids want these days?
How about asking him why wont he accept gifts?
It could be because he acknowledges the efforts you parents put into him, or maybe he feels guilty about asking for gifts or stuff.
Bitch i don't fucking know, just ask him.
your son is a lot like me. he doesnt want STUFF.. he wants skills
he doesnt want a bb gun. or a rc car. or useless shit. your son is turning into a tough mother fucker
what that boy wants is something like a gym pass. he wants to go bungee jumping. he wants experiences.. not material possessions
you should be proud of him for that. get him something that will last. get that boy a book on how to fix cars or maybe just how to do carpentry or something
go on craigslist and buy him a cheap 50 dollar guitar and a book to teach him some chords. get that boy a basketball so hell get into sports and learn skills he can play with other boys
get that boy something to turn him into a man
i didnt say push. i said give it to him. i didnt say hes not man enough. i said fill his life with manly things
i dont know a single guy that wouldnt like a new guitar or a gym pass or a new basketball/soccer ball. you dont even have to be like HERE I GOT YOU THIS NOW GO DO IT just be like here and walk away and let him do it
men like manly things. its not about doubting his masculinity. just like im sure if you had a daughter shed love a new cell phone or.. shoes. or something
guys like shoes too get him some black nikes
i had three pairs of these and you can get them dirt cheap and theyre one of my favorite shoes. and lets be real youre gunna have to get him new shoes eventually why not some solid nikes
Ah the the societal disillusionment phase. Just let him be. Eventually he'll learn that his forfeiture of material goods has absolutely no impact on poor black children and he'll be asking for gifts again.
Use the extra money to treat the rest of the family.
Ask his friends what he wants. Tell them that they cannot tell him anything about the conversation. Get what he wants. Show it to him on his birthday. And say something about how you saw this and thought of him. But if he doesn't want it, you could take it back to the store and get something for yourself to celebrate his punk ass coming out of you. See how quickly he says that he wants it. Give it to him. And talk start the conversation about why he doesn't want to get presents.
If he actually doesn't want the gift, stay by your word and return it and get something nice for yourself and talk to your son about why he doesn't want you giving him gifts.
