  • Don't give in her to her screams and eventually she will stop at least when she is with you.

  • He bought a jacket and shoes, that's a good thing. You two need to discuss how you will deal with the 2 year old, because that spoiled kid in the store stuff is annoying to everyone, and it will just get worse. But as for the cost of shoes, I wouldn't sweat it, if they kids need shoes and they cost 100 and it's not hurting financially don't sweat it. My son who is 14 mos has 40 and 50 dollar shoes and I know my hubby's shoes all range from 100-200 and their only sneakers, lol It's all in taste and quality.

  • Okay mom, really can you stop him? The real question is does he spoil you too? My oldest son is the same way. He overindulges his two with lavish clothing, shoes , dinners also. It is his way of parenting. I do not offer a opinion because he is the dad.
