To get a child of 7 for Christmas their own Xbox, tv & DVD player bla bla bla. Saw it on thread about what people are getting their kids got Christmas. Is it me or is this madness?

Personally, I think it's really vile to bitch about someone's choice of gifts on another thread.

valiumredhead Thu 15-Nov-12 18:48:40

Really eye opening! & amusing how shitty people get!

Pot, kettle, black?

Shitty is starting a thread to snark at a post on another thread.

Everlong Thu 15-Nov-12 18:50:03

Shitty?!? This ain't shitty. Good god no.

TiredBooyhoo Thu 15-Nov-12 18:50:42

why does spending lots on your children = them being brats? does having more money than others mean you have less parenting skills? confused

PickledFanjoCat Thu 15-Nov-12 18:51:54

It's so vile I just vomited on my screen.

Actually I am envy I'd love to have all that just for meeeeee.

valiumredhead Thu 15-Nov-12 18:52:02

Yes it does tired and it makes them rude and ungrateful because EVERYONE knows if you spend money on your children that's what happens.

TiredBooyhoo Thu 15-Nov-12 18:53:50

i have no money. that must make me a brilliant parent <preens>

Or...maybe, we have lots of cash as we waited until we could afford kids before having them? Thus being older and wiser, and most certainly better parents.

^^
Yeah, that was bollocks, I was a teenage mum. But still, meh.

And if you buy them Electronic Things they will just end up staying in their bedrooms for ever and ever and ever. With you poking toast under the door, your pleas to "Come out darling, we can play Monopoly!" fallen unnoticed under the Beep-beepity of Vileness emanating from the X-Box. That* you* bought them, you vile parent. sad

BOFingSanta Thu 15-Nov-12 18:54:33

I think it's a bit vulgar, yes. But not vile.

I just don't know howthey don't lose it all
my son, the one I mentioned, loses everything. If I bought that list I would be fuming/grey/in prison because of it. I bought him a lookalike superdry form tkmaxx (benza something) and he lost that in the first week hmm found it again mind

though tvs and xboxs harder to leave on your peg i assume, or on the bus

missymoomoomee Thu 15-Nov-12 18:55:25

I have no money and I am up to my eyes in debt, I think you may find I am the superior parent here Tired

valiumredhead Thu 15-Nov-12 18:55:37
