comment How can I teach my child not to be greedy?
I would suggest that you rephrase your question to something like "how do I teach my child not to be greedy". It seems like your concern is commercialism.

comment Are Ballet or Swimming lessons more suitable for our girl?
I make my children finish the year of whatever they have started or reach the SMART goal they have set for themselves whichever makes sense. It's a challenge knowing how long to make them persevere since if they love something, they will stick with it through that growing period when it's difficult. No, I would not let her change her mind mid year.

comment How young is too young to take a child overseas?
Sometimes you don't have to buy a seat if there is one vacant. Ask. If you have the car seat with you, but can't use it because there are no vacancies, the seat gets "sky checked". It is better to be prepared than not.
