  • I think most parents just would, and I dont know if "expect" is the word, but Im sure most people in the family of the winner, have a good idea if they will be gettting any. I guess it depends on how much they won, etc.

  • No, I am not entitled to their things or Money just because I am their daughter ... but I know they would.

  • Of course not! But I know they would in a heartbeat. Just like I'd give them a huge chunk if I won.

  • 1. If my mom won the lottery, she would probably help with some of my debt because she's very generous, not because I expect it.
    2. Only a total brat would expect it!!! If you won the lottery, should your parents expect you to give them some?

  • yes,since she owes me 14,000 that she stole from my college fund my dad set up just before he died. Her hubby didn't think he should have to work,so they used up my money. I didn't know until I was about to use it. Surprise surprise!

  • No. They won the money, it's theirs. My dad just retired and they're on a fixed income now. He has a nice pension, but it would be nice for them to not have any money worries. Knowing my parents though, they would give us money to help each of the kids out, and give the grandkids money for college.

  • No

  • No, it's their money! They won it, why should they give some to me? After all the years they spent taking care of me, spending money on the stupid, unimportant things I wanted instead of needed, they deserve all of that money for themselves!
