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!
