my SS12 is a very entitled boy. Nothing I do for him is good enough.
I bought him some long sleeve shirts, he complained the sleeves were not long enough, although they were longer than a new one his Dad gave him not 3 weeks prior.
I sewed a badge on his sash (which *I* paid for) and was told that it was on slightly crookedly. (It was, but you'd need to look really really really close to see.)
I printed out some pictures for his school assignment and put them on the coffee table when I got home. DH told him they were there and he just kind of grunted. Later when he looked at them he said "there are TWO of these. I only need ONE."
I sent him some joke emails - he told me that he'd heard them all before.
I can't remember the last time I had a "thankyou" from this child. He used to say it frequently, so I know he know's how!
I don't know if it's worth backing off on how much I do for him. I'm starting to feel used and unappreciated. I could make an issue of it with DH and SS the next time I'm asked to do something. I don't want to be hard on him because after all he's just a kid, but I really don't like this trend.
