What kind of children are you raising!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Im so disgusted by the post today. One post where majority of you actually think its okay that a 13 year old chose not to invite her cousins to her slumber party. One who is 8 the other 14. The 14 year old should have been invited point blank she is family and family means more then a friend. Stop raising self centered children.



Then its a huge deal for family to take the child's room /bed for a small visit? Like seriously????

Whats the big deal your child can sleep with you or camp it out in the living for the 3-7 day visit like how long does a family visit last? When I was growing up we had to and i never felt less loved or like my uncle/aunt grandmother/ grandfather was more important. I felt like I was a child and I have manners so I will give my room to an adult to feel welcomed in our home. Do you guys also teach your children not to give up a seat to an elder or pregnant woman?



Im scared the kind of selfish kids your raising.

The cousins were invited to the actual party the next day tho..
You are saying if someone has a sleepover they have to invite family? I've had sleepers with friends and left family out... No hard feelings.

Um that WAS OKAY OP. Since when are our children not allowed to have FRIENDS ONLY parties? A 13 year old wanted a party with her 13 yo FRIENDS. THE HORROR!!!

I totally agree with you. I'm very strict when it comes to manners, they both have 'please', 'thank you', 'sorry', and 'excuse me' down. Can't get them to figure out "you're welcome" though! Lol

Hahaha! Well just try to teach em
Important values they wont always be perfect but manners goes a long way.

My kids are awesome! But they're only 4 and 2, so there's plenty of time for them to turn... Lol

How many times do you say "like" during daily conversation?

I agree. My kids can (and will) tough it out while family comes to stay. My grandmother is flying in as we speak and will be sleeping in DD's room. They will survive. I'm not going to camp my grandmother out on the couch. I'd give her my bed, but she can't make it up the stairs.

But I don't agree with the teenager party. The party is for that girls' birthday. The 8 and 14 year old DDs shouldn't feel entitled to go. It's the 13 year old and her friends. Her family doesn't need to tag along every time. What if OP had her own little "party" for all the girls? SHE can take them all out. Nope, she wants to sit on her high horse and bitch about someone else footing the bill for it. When you were a teen (your FIRST day as a teen), did you want to hang out with 8 year olds? What is that, second grade? Nope, didn't think so.

 not to brag (ok to brag a litte lol) my kindergardner just got student of the month for being polite and using manners, volentering and helping, and being curtious :) She's the oldest out of 4. I know darn well what kind of children we are raising here!

 I agree except for the invite, if my kid didn't want to invite a cousin (or whomever) then so be it, it's their party.


I am fine with the kids giving up their bed to family if they are down although it has never came up. Usually we only have one person down and that is my mom and she is happy to sleep on the couch. If both her and my stepdad come they bring their motor home. As for the party. It is fine to not invite family if the child chooses not to. My son goes to school with his cousin, but we haven't envited her to his birthday for the last few years, she hasn't invited him either. It doesn't bother us at all. A child should nopt be forced to invite some one especially to a party that sounds like it would cost a lot just because they are family
