My dd 15 was telling me about one of her friends. She was like she get everything. I was like ya. She has an iPhone. Her mom said she'll pay for everything except gas until she is 18 even her car. I said that nice but I prefer that y'all work for stuff when y'all are 16


Fast forward until dinner. I was telling the kids that i have to make them a dentist appointment. I think dd needs braces. .and my dd said that is one thing that my friend mom won't do. I said huh. She said well she told me her mom won't take her to the dentist and that's why she has Brown teeth.

I was like really. Smdh

Ok tell me how this makes sense. Get Your kid and iPhone, buy her a car pay for everything but you won't take her to the dentist.

Does it really matter? You and your daughter are on the outside looking in. The grass is always greener on the other side. Maybe that iPhone is a prepay or a $10 a month extra line. Maybe they don't have dental insurance... not your child so not your problem.

Your right not my problem but I am entitled to an opinion .and fyi, we live in Florida even you make to much for Medicaid. Florida kidcare offer health coverage for $20 a month and it covers dental and vision. My kids have used ot in the past..

That doesn't make sense. A good parent ensures their child has healthcare. That includes dental care. There is no reason for brown teeth though, unless she wasn't even taught basic dental hygiene.

Poor kid. I consider physicals and dental appointments to be basic needs that need to be met.

I've met people who just don't give a shit about oral hygiene. I don't get it either. I used to have a friend who made about 250,000 a year and she had the nastiest teeth. She just didn't care about getting them fixed.

Then you save that $10 and put it towards at least annual check ups. That's the responsible, adult thing to do. If you can't afford a NEED, you save instead of frittering money away on WANTS.
