  • ugh! I don't have enough wood to make a playground for my daughter Rebecca!
  • I use all of it for the fire place outside! I need wood there or else we won't be warm.
  • What should we do Jeramiah? I really want Rebecca to be happy.
  • Of course! Show me all of them.
  • Well, I learned the other day that their are 3 ways to handle this situation. Wanna hear?
  • First, go with out the want. If you don't have the resources, so you can't satisfy the want, so life goes on. Maybe Rebecca doesn't need that playground.
  • Hmmm I don't know, I want Rebecca to be happy.
  • Ok, well maybe we can try making our own resources. If you want more resources, find a way to make more!
  • Well, that's a good idea, but we live in the city, how are we going to chop wood?
  • I think you will like the last one. Redistributing resources! Make decisions that can help the problem. Like selling old things for money to buy the wood!
  • That's a great idea! We can sell the old books I have to get money!
  • Yay! Rebecca is happy and we learned how to deal with the problem of limited resources and unlimited wants!
  • We did it! Selling old books to buy wood worked!
  • Weeeeee!!
