Sense of Entitlement......
Why is it that some kids now a days have this huge sense of entitlement:
This is our TEEN Daughter's NEEDS: (SD17.... and she has been like this since she was 13 years old.)
Cell Phones - Latest model, unlimited everything... constant upgrades
IPODs - Largest storage capacity
CARS - Nice, shiny and new... no old models for them!
Insurance - Car insurance..cell phone insurance.... all paid for by BF!!!
Lap Tops - Fastest, latest and greatest, with designer carry bag.
Hair - Expensive hair do's - highlights... monthly
Nails - Mani Pedi... this is a social event for teen girls
Tanning - Gotta be tan. More important than Mani/ Pedi
Designer Clothes - Abercrombie, etc.... Labels count. Tells people how cool you are
Designer Bags - Grandma buys these for the girls.... gotta have some kind of designer bag...
Designer shoes - Coach.... at 16 years old? Are you kidding me? Uggs..... don't even go there.... she has 2 pair!
Make up - that fancy stuff from Sphedora... or Sephora... whatever... Miracle stuff....
Flat screen - Gotta have one in the bedroom
DVD player - yep one of those too... HD version.
Designer Bedding - Bedroom done up like Better Homes and Gardens, but it will be a disaster with clothes and stuff everywhere all the time!
Designer Bra's - Victorias Secret.... oh and undies too!
Spending $$$$ - whatever Pops will hand out.
Ok...now I want to point out.... that this example is for a SD17 who's mother has 4 children, lives in a condo paid for by her parents, drives a beat up car, constantly gets her internet and cell phone shut off.... drives without car insurance half the time, and has to ask BF for money for ANYTHING BD17 needs.... because she is BROKE.
The same Grandparents that pay for the condo, started this with SD17... buying her whatever she desired.... designer stuff. Now... SD is a material girl.... and can't hardly fathom having to wear non designer stuff..... its terrible. Her BM doesn't have a dime... and they live poorly... but she goes to school like DESIGNER QUEEN.
