I am new to cafemom, so please do not laugh when I ask, what does "DD" stand for? OK, the real question is, my daughter is 11 almost 12, in the last year she has been being an ungrateful pain in the butt. We try and get out and do something fun with our children, something inexpensive that we can all enjoy doing together. After yesterdays day out as a family, my daughter cried with actual tears, because we wouldn't take them outto dinner and shopping. We tired to explain to her, and many times in the past, that only one parent is working, and we just don't have the extra money to do that. How do we make her understand? Do we cut all outings including the parks and nature walks and bike rides? Is it the age? Our son is happy with playing outside all day, but he is 4. What can we do???
