I have a problem. My little Ultraman always want to buy something new whenever we go out to the shops.
Since he can now form sentences, he has been pestering me to go to the shop every day and buy something for him.
Mummy, jom pegi Speedy!
Mummy, jom pegi kedai!
Mummy, nak pegi situ!
Mummy, nak pegi sini!
And he knows what to get at each place we visited. If at GE Mall, he'd run to Speedy without anyone's help and pick-up an Ultraman toy. If at the mamak shop near our house, he'd hover near the toy area. If we passed by Ampang Point, he'd say, "Baby nak pegi sana. Nak beli Ultraman!" Nampak KLCC, nak pegi KLCC because he knows there's a toy shop there!
When I told him, "Mummy tak ada duit!", he would answer, "Ada!"and he'd korek the coin box in my car or my purse for loose change. "Haa... ni duit ada!". 10 sen. Tak boleh beli apa, Nizzar.
His definition of "duit" is just the loose coins. He still doesn't know that the red and blue paper notes are also money. Thank God for that!
Now, I try to avoid all possible areas yang ada jual Ultraman. But it's hard because even Petronas stations pun sekarang dah ada jual Ultraman!
What should I do? How should I handle this situation?
I cannot reason with him because he still don't undertand reasoning. I can trade the Ultraman for something else, but later, he'd ask for it again and again, tak berhenti2 sampai I naik rimas and in the end, I'd buy the thing to make him keep quiet.
I can't possibly be doing this everytime he pulls a stunt like that. How should I make him stop? Alternatively, how should I stop giving in to his requests? He's driving me crazy!
