  • 2 of mine did when they hit the teenage years. The other didn't. With one it got so bad she moved in with her dad because she thought he would cater to her more and he did.

  • Not at all. He is very grateful for all that he has and that anyone does for him. I don't allow anything else. I have no problem taking things away when he does. He is not perfect but seeing that we have very little to begin with, anything that he does get he is grateful for it. He was taught to be that way. I feel that when teens or any child are ungrateful, it is because the parents cater to the child's every whim and when they become teens what they want are just bigger.
