Oh it's just starting for ya !!!! I have 5 Grandkids one 19, two 18, one 15 one 13 ... I liked it better when they were so young it didn't matter what you got then at all
When my grandson was 4 My daughter and I were shopping and he said to me Mammy can you buy me some Osh kosh clothes
I said who clothes ... The kids are used to $100 shoes and $50 jeans and so on, now it has gone from simple to where it's tougher to do with 5. I wouldn't want to be a parent of a teen today, they talk about perr pressure PHALLEZ ZZZZZ what about parent pressure people trying to make sure they keep up with friends.
My grandson is in collage and when he was looking at where he wanted to go he CHOOSE Chicago $26,000 a year now granted my daughter and hubby could do that, but after thinking about it, My daughter told him sure you can go but I'm not paying for it this year you need to take what you need first then we'll talk about it...Wow I though how do people with 2 or 3 do it, he's an only child and he's very smart and a good kid and he's18
I don't care you need to understand how much pressue there will be on you
They think 18 is amazing it's not your no smarter then you were at 17.999 ...I feel for ya
