From one extreme to the other….the brats (yesterday they were TA & B2…today the’re brats….how things change, eh?)….think that money grows on trees and that they deserve certain things in life, be it an Xbox and a Nintendo and CD’s and movies and THAT phone whenever they want ….we don’t agree.
They don’t have an Xbox, they don’t have Nintendo whatever. We take them to movies once a month, we eat out once a month (in those snazzy restaurants) they get clothes as they need them. The grandpa buys the “label” clothes because we refuse to. They have a PS2 which their grandpa bought as well….Spoilt brats….We had countless of arguments with the gramps over this and after many futile attempts to make him see sense, we’ve just given up….it’s his money, if he wants to be a spendthrift, so be it….
The ongoing saga in our house is wastage …I dish for them…they don’t clean their plates…I expect them to lick it clean…ok maybe not as bad. BUT no leftovers allowed. This is why I ask HOW MUCH do you want on your plate?? Same goes for cereals & their lunchboxes, every-thing related to food…there are people out there who scrounge through garbage bins to get something to eat, to wear, to drink…SO DO NOT WASTE!!! There are children who have to go to school without a shred of nourishment in their stomachs or shoes on their feet, HELL, there are children who have to WALK to school, you get dropped every morning??? Spoilt I tell you
This morning again…wasting the cereal and milk and sugar….so tomorrow I’m gonna make them go to school hungry…and they will not get lunch….see how it is to try and concentrate while your stomach is growling and you’re thirsty. Maybe THAT will teach them….
