In a shocking new study, a dirty little secret of many parents is revealed -- they're thieves. According to CouponCodes4u, almost half of parents say they've taken money from their children's savings accounts. Even worse -- 51 percent say they don't feel guilty about it.
Now, I've been known to take a few dollars from my kids' piggy banks here and there in a crisis (hello, Tooth Fairy nights!), as I never have cash on hand, but I always pay them back ... at least when I remember. But going into an actual savings account and withdrawing their money to pay my bills or something, that I would never do.
There are, however, plenty of other things I do shamelessly steal from kids and make no apologies for. Here are seven of them.
1. Their Easter Candy
Think of it as saving their teeth from all of that sugar. Ditto for Halloween candy.
2. Their Attention
Away from the TV, video games, and other mind-melding devices.
3. Glances at Them When They're Sleeping
Or lingering gazes.
4. Their Jokes
5. Their Fries
They won't notice if you're quick.
6. Their Diary
Just for a quick peek, once in awhile.
7. Their Hugs & Kisses
