Seems the kids think we're a bank! Even though they know we're on a fixed income they want us to give them money. They keep on us or torment us with their words until we give in. Then if we don't have it, they make us feel like its our fault that they don't have moeny to spend. My sister has the same problem. Only her kids go one step further, they break into her home to steal it or take it out of her purse when she's not looking. Its crazy. I know we didn't raise our children to be this way?Answer Question

next time he asks, say something like "i guess i need dont really that medication/electricity/groceries/etc this month". if they continue to ask, say you cannot afford it. then, dont buy things and show them off to your kids, becasue then they will think you are lying to them

Just look at them sternly and say NO. We have bills just like you do. Stop answering their calls. Be to busy all the time to talk to them. When they come knocking . Pretend to not be at home.
