I admire kids that can look after things (and their parents for teaching them to).

I bought 3 of my nephews pocket knives for Christmas this year, they are between 7 and 11 years old. They have all lost them now, but then they have wealthy folks and loosing stuff is not an issue for them, mom will just buy a new one mentality!

I bought my son a Leatherman when he was 9, he is 21 now and still has it.

Know exactly what you are talking about.

The three grandkids of my eldest daughter will receive nothing from me that I consider a family heirloom.

Parents have taught them nothing about honoring and respecting gifts.
