This is more a rant than anything. I have a son who is almost 16. (also have two other children son, 21 and daughter 20, who live away from home already.) First off, I would like to say that he is not a bad kid, he is kind, good hearted and very polite. Man is he lazy though, he also thinks money grows on trees! I did not bring him up this way. Money has always been pretty tight, I have never recieved child support for him and have always had to work to support him. I bought him a coat at Ross Dress for Less about a month ago, it was 14.99. A couple of weeks later I noticed the coat was torn so I said, I cannot believe that coat is already torn! You should be more careful! He says to me, "It only cost 14.99 anyway, what's the big deal?" It really irked me, maybe it it is just me......what does it matter how much it costs? He sure did not have 14.99 to buy it but expected for me to have it! Kids, I just cant seem to get into his head how hard money is to come by! He thinks it grows on trees! He does not recieve a lot of things and usually does not get any money to spend as he refuses to earn it. Nothing motivates him!
