DEAR JEANNE AND LEONARD: My husband and I disagree about how to be fair when giving gifts to our grandchildren. Neither of us wants to ever favor one child over another. But I say that means giving the kids gifts that have the same value, while my husband says we should be giving them gifts that cost about the same amount. So if I buy one grandchild a $50 toy and pay full price for it, but buy the other grandchild a $50 toy on sale for $25, my husband says we need to spend another $25 on the second child. Could he be right? — Debbi
