SDs and Bedrooms?
So the last time my SDs were here they kept complaining about having to share a bedroom at our house. They think it’s unfair as they’re the oldest (9 and 11). How do other people handle this? We renovated the basement when our baby was born and built them a big bedroom and rec room down there. It’s the only bedroom big enough in the house to share easily and the other two kids (5,1) are too young to be down there. I don’t think the little kids would mind sharing but I’d have to put them in one of the small upstairs rooms. I also think it would be unfair for the older kids who are basically only here during vacations to have 2 out of 3 of the kid bedrooms.
My parents didn’t have a lot of money growing up and my brothers shared well into teenagehood so I just felt like telling them to suck it up. One of them was upset because the clothes we buy her aren’t branded (theyre just from regular stores like children’s place) and because her baby sister (who lives here full time) has more clothes than her. Is this just what kids are like nowadays? We try to treat them as similarly as possible but it’s just logical that full time kids need to have more clothes. I’ve been with their dad for 5 years now and this is the first time I’ve ever seen behaviour like this....just entering an entitled bratty tween phase maybe?
