Say goodbye to people who devalue you – After you have tried making changes; consider who you want in your life and who has similar value and belief systems to you. Ask yourself why you might hold onto friendships that are directly opposite to your beliefs. Is it for the status, the image or the materialistic benefits?

Encourage your children to seek out relationships that are based on qualities they admire, rather than being friends with the person with the most X box games.
Despite how hard the challenges are for me, above all it’s going to be worthwhile for me, my family, my community, and hopefully our planet.

It’s just a small step in the right direction. I'm just making a positive change as a parent and trying to undo some of the damage I have already done.

Thankyou Happy Mom i agree.
Excellent advice. I try to implement this in our friendships as well, but it is very hard because everyone is inclined to consumerism at some level, which is fine. Like-minded people are hard to find, but they are out there. Don't give up your search.
