Lately my kids have been starting to notice how well off we are. They know they have brand name clothes, we own a nice home, nice cars, ect. The rule in our home is you get a cell phone when you go into middle school. My dd who's 10 has been asking for one since her brother got one for his birthday a few weeks ago (he will be in 6th grade in the fall.) When we told her no she said "But mom we have money. Why can't I have one?" I was sure to correct her. "No. Your father and I have money. Not you. You don't work, we do." And then proceeded to take away her ipad and ipod. She will also be volunteering to see how good she has it. Smh, so disapointed. Thought I raised her better than that.
