Mother Takes Daughter Shopping For Reason

Housewife Urvi Kumar takes her daughter to shop for a reason.

“We should be taking our children shopping as the outing teaches them life time lessons,” Mrs Kumar said.

Mrs Kumar sometimes does her grocery shopping twice a week during which she always makes sure that her five-year-old daughter Jaanvi Kumar accompanies her.

“Children are always watching and learning. One day they will manage their own finances and life, that is why I bring her along,” she said.

“Yes, like other children she is watching and she is learning.

“She has been accompanying me since she was able to walk. She is familiar with this surrounding and she knows that we stick to our shopping list.”

Though the family lives at Laucala Beach of which there are shopping facilities close by; Mrs Kumar prefers to shop at Shop N Save in Nabua.

Mrs Kumar 34, sits her daughter while she draws up the shopping list prior to shopping – this assists in having her daughter have ownership of the shopping list.

“In general, when you go into a store without any kind of plan, kids respond mainly to whatever is around them,” she said.

“If you have not yet set clear rules for what will and will not be purchased, they see no problem in nagging for snacks based on what they see first or what captures their attention.

“Instead of randomly looking at everything, the shopping list gives your child something specific to seek out and at the same time sharing the importance of saving money.”

“If your child asks for something outside the list, you can use the list as an excuse for refusing to buy the item.

“The shopping list is important because it keeps you focussed. With your child more focused on buying only what is listed, he or she will encounter another benefit – the ability to stay within his or her budget later in life ” she said.

Like other women, Mrs Kumar doesn’t only shop for herself; she has her entire family in mind when it comes to preference over any food item or product.

She said the health of her family was in her hands so selection of products and items were important.

“While shopping, I keep in mind to check expiry dates and conditions of the goods that I buy,” she said.

“I make sure; I do vegetables shopping and choose items which are affordable and healthy.”

Mrs Kumar prefers Shop N Save in Nabua because of their affordable and quality items.

The supermarket according to Mrs Kumar has spacious isles, with accurate shelf tags, clean and neat surroundings and a safe environment for everyone.

“I do my shopping here because of the affordable and the quality products and the services from staff members are too good.”

Mrs Kumar shares her favourite recipe, lamb palau.
