My daughter has no concept of enough. I don’t know if it is related to the lack of number sense or something else.
But there is no satisfaction in her – there is never enough. Whatever she has, she wants more. Whatever she doesn’t have, she wants…and wants more. It is not a matter of being ungrateful – it is something bigger. Something I have a hard time understanding.
She could never understand Goldilock’s declaration: This one is just right.
It makes me sad that she doesn’t experience contentment.
She has a hard time, too, with the concepts of more or less, bigger or smaller, nearer or farther, above and below. I think that not understanding these concepts is all related for her – but I am not sure how.
How do you make someone understand “enough?”
