This is more of vent but here goes, why is it that some parents don't seem to do much for their kids? They're irresponsible, don't provide for their own kids and ask for handouts!
One of son's aunts is like this. She doesn't work but she'll be dressed up, smoking cigarettes, and going out every weekend. Then she turns around and asks me if I have any clothes or shoes I can give her for her son (He's 2 mines 3). In the past I've given her some of my son's things for her child but I feel bad for the little guy. Now I'm starting to resent it. I'm a single mom and I work hard to provide for my son. I give up a lot so that he has everything he needs. Is it wrong if I flat out tell her no, I won't give her anymore clothes for her son?

I gave up a lot and sometimes even having new clothes or a car so they could always have but being a single parent for 10 years and feeling like one in a relationship I realize having designer clothes when your kids don't have the basics is a waste. one bag or everyone gets clothes for me its everyone. Some people don't care. I would say give her nothing but if she acts the way some of my relatives and people I know do you might be the only reason he has clothes.
