“Is That All?”

Billy is used to getting the things that he wants. On his birthday parties and at Christmas his parents would buy him lots of presents. The only problem was that he never seemed happy with all the things that he received. No matter how many presents they bought, he would always ask “Is that all?” or would whine because he did not get another present that he wanted. He did not seem thankful for what he had.

Why do you think he acts like this?

How would you suggest helping him appreciate the things without always wanting more?
