“Dear PoPville,

Lo and behold another Christmas is set to arrive any day now, the usual folks I know are going to receive gifts. This year, again, my nephew, my sister’s only child is asking for expensive games and gaming equipment. I find myself, whenever I’m around my sister and nephew, constantly seeing my nephew glued to his phone or some TV and phone video gaming situation. My sister is a single parent who has not much money for any outside study courses but what would the answer be given my nephew is a latch-key kid until she gets home from work at 6:00-6:30 daily. Any suggestions to change this behaviour? My nephew’s daily how are you; response; fine, got any homework; no, I did it. Nothing, is becoming too stale for words there has to be a better answer….thanks.”
