Garage Sale just shows how SS/ DH think
We finally had a garage sale after moving into this house together last summer.
When I garage sale I go through my garage, closet, kitchen and jids' rooms to thin out the stuff. DH and Ss13 each have lots of stuff (that never gets used). I've been prepping DH to get rid of the stuff. He said he'd have to "ask SS" since some of the stuff was his.
I told him, "oh hell no. You don't "ask" your son what we are keeping/ selling. You tell him"
DH and SS had several motorized vehicles and bikes that are taking up space. SS also has literally 100 video games in his overstuffed room.
DH was able to convince SS to sell a go cart, but informed me that he'd Have to give SS some of the money since it was his. I explained to him that he was the parent, the one purchasing things,maintaining them, and getting Rid if them when they were no longer being used.
One of dh's friends overheard me and have DH some shit for his parenting style /: lack there of.
I won't even go into what happened with the video games, but let's just say that if they belonged to my children, I would have already taken them to GameStop to get money for them jut as I'm about to do with the kindles I purchased for all 4 kids that they can't seem to use.
Anyway. What do you all think?
I think parents own everything and keep the moneyt sold and decide on how it's spent. (all money earned at our sale is being out towards next weekend's family trip).
