Parents shouldn't be satisfied doing the bare minimum but children should also appreciate what their parents do for them
@Royal Waffle, right? Hate when parents use that " i pay for your food and water etc" as if the kid had a choice of not using that stuff. Thanks for keeping your kid alive like you're suppose to?
@Royal Waffle, sometimes the bare minimum is all that can be afforded
@Royal Waffle, I got quite a bit from mine, but memories and actions are what left the biggest mark on my life. There was nothing more special then coming home from school to see the house totally decorated for Halloween, Christmas, or my birthday just to surprise my brother and I. It's a small thing to some but they're my happiest memories as a small kid.
@Dexios S Divine, it's worse when they do that, buy you a nice thing every now and then and use that as an excuse to spend 10 dollars every night in alcohol and scream, cry and be violently angry all night.
And they they proceed to complain about never having anything for them self and saying how much they do for you.
When my kids call me djckface, all the are getting their hands on is the third picture...
@Slimding , why is your comment do difficult to read?
@Assassinator2399, because he called his father a djckface. Can't really type with burnt hands.
@Assassinator2399, I don't know what you mean, but I am Dutch and my dictionary tries to autocorrect me constantly... Sometimes a mistakes slips through.
Or did you mean something else?
You see, in my case I say the same thing and my parents try to use this argument, but I don't think it's valid. In my family there are 6 kids (I'm child #2) and I seldom got things from them. All of the things that I have I had to by myself and I mean EVERYTHING like: My ps2, gameboy color, gb advance, shoes throughout the years since I was 10 (I'm 21 now), my ipod touch, my tv's, ps4, laptop, and car. Meanwhile, my eldest brother got all those things including a $15,000 car, and don't even get me started with my sisters. I don't mean to be salty about this since it has taught me to grow up because now I'm a full-ride scholarship student with a leadership position in the scholarship program. Still though, I love my parents for the things they actually do, love ya mom and pops! TLDR I bought almost everything myself as I was growing up, my siblings didn't.
@CreamyPie, It also taught me to be independent.
@CreamyPie, the shoes are really the only necessity and access to a laptop is becoming a necessity in high school and college now
Well, son. Since you just called me dickface, you ain't getting sh!t now!
I mean they're kinda buying that for themselves
Why I outta.... You know what .. No nvm... I'll just wait for the purge :) mwuahahaha
If I even tried to mumble an insult under my breath it would be the pimp hand... I really kids who insult their parents.
In some places it's a law that you buy those, and if you don't your kids could be taken by social services
More like "when you didn't bother to raise your child to have any appreciation or respect."
Then get them dickbutt
Time for some strong opinions on the matter. *waits in comment section*
@RMB, I have one to give; This should be the basic needs of any decent parent to provide your offspring with Food,Water and Shelter (with electricity and heating) It should be free of charge until they are able to provide for themselfs. Any counter arugments?
@Nosurrender, ^agree 👍
@Nosurrender, ya like okay mum don't feed me then, and when I starve you go to jail 😂
@GeekGirl, I've done that before. My mom was yelling at me for something dumb (I'm pretty sure it had to do with me snoring) so I pitched a tent in the back yard for a week. I wore the same clothes to school all week, didn't eat at home, didn't shower, only drank water from a bottle I filled up at school and didn't even sleep with any blankets. She didn't get in any trouble but child services were pretty mad. I was like 9 at the time.
@ChocoboPizzacat, gosh , you were one gutsy 9 y o 😱
@ChocoboPizzacat, yeah 😂😂
