I often hear kids say “…but mom, I need it!”. I understand where they are coming from because I did it too when I was little. I was so convinced that I could live off eating just candies that I begged my mom to buy candies for me because I “needed” it. I was so sure that I needed candies in order to survive going to school everyday because my life was apparently “SO” difficult. I guess the difference between the wants and needs is somewhat blurred when you are young. In order to help kids distinguish or identify basic wants and needs, we’ve created a worksheet to help with learning this basic concept. Our free Identifying Basic Wants and Needs worksheet can be easily used online or printed. I hope everyone enjoys this worksheet!
