    i think experiences are important.
    my kids will be going overseas a lot, as the inlaws live in a developing country. an eye opener when the biggest issue for most aussie kids is having the latest toy

    I don't think children need stuff. Both my partner and I come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. I still went on holidays with my family, but we didn't have many things growing up.

    We earn good money, but do not spoil our children. We don't have the latest gadgets, we have one computer that is at least 6 years old. We don't spend much at Christmas, but our children are happy.

    To me, holidays are important. My husband works 6 days a week, so any extended time we have together is great. We went to Queensland for a holiday in January and the kids loved it - and they had no toys or tv when we were away.

    Overseas holidays are on our agenda, as my husband is Irish, so visiting family there is important to us. I also look forward to taking my children on holidays around Australia when they're at school. I'm a teacher so will be able to take them to places during school holidays. I think it's important for children to see other places.
