Anyone else had an ungrateful outburst from dd?

Ebay her 'crap' presents for her?

Wow. How rude. I would be doing as hungrywoman suggested.

Poor you OP!

Not mine, but one of my friend's daughters has complained about getting five pairs of pyjamas in the middle of a biglongmoan about how Xmas is rubbish when you are no longer a little kid ( she is 14). I felt a bit sorry for her ( and my friend) as I can remember feeling the same thing.

That is SO rude! My DD - only 7, so I know it's different - came into my bedroom on Christmas morning, carrying her stocking and said " I feel too lucky with all this, I am spoiled, I want to give some of my toys to charity."

I dont know where it came from, but I hope she continues to feel that way.

i probably would have got a black bin bag and chucked the lot out of temper tbh.

or worse tweeted back some highly imapropriate parent comment

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Wed 26-Dec-12 22:44:10

Take them all off her

take a photograph of them as you bin them

tweet it #job done

What did she get?

Don't put up with it!!

She thinks they are crap, do the above. Take them to a Charity or Social Services.

Tough.

Moominsarehippos Wed 26-Dec-12 22:48:53

Does she know that you've seen it?

I'd be fuming! Take presents away from her.

GlitterySparklyBaublesOfDoom Wed 26-Dec-12 22:55:41

I'd reply to her tweet and say you're going to flog them on Ebay for charity seeing as she doesn't want them. All her mates/followers will see it. Would serve her right methinks!

VicarInaTutuDrankSantasSherry Wed 26-Dec-12 23:50:08

what did she get?

had she asked for any of it?

my dd is 15 and gave us a list.....she didnt get it all but she got a lot of it.

SecretSantaFix Wed 26-Dec-12 23:54:01

then she gets them removed.

MNPdoesYULETIDE Thu 27-Dec-12 00:00:30

Give them to someone who would cherish them

Or

Was she trying to act Big!!

sashh Thu 27-Dec-12 09:16:21

Are they crap?

Still rude to tweet, but I'd like to know what she got.

MaryBS Thu 27-Dec-12 09:27:01

DD is 13 and loves her presents (nice camera and several pairs of PJs blush and a few other bits, but not the DVD player and other things she wanted). We do get the odd outburst from her, some of which can be hurtful, but not about her presents.

Astelia Thu 27-Dec-12 09:36:45

Another one wondering what she got and had she asked for anything specifically?

Teens are self-absorbed and they want to fit in with their friends. If their presents are not similar to what friends got or what they asked for it is more cool to slag them off IYSWIM.

Moominsarehippos Thu 27-Dec-12 09:43:25

Still - it would be good to learn now that you can't shit on someone else and not expect fallout.

Better an earbashing from mum than a punch in the face from some crazy schoolmate you've made a rude tweet about!

I do wonder what she got. Maybe it was a roll of dog-poo-picky-up bags? That would be a crap gift!

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 27-Dec-12 09:52:23

And she still has them?

Please tell me her 'crap' gifts are now removed from the ungrateful baggage's bedroom, awaiting ebay listings.

Don't reward such behaviour by allowing her to keep these things.

Or at least a short sharp shock of removing them and telling her they're going on ebay, but they could possibly be earned back with good behaviour/chores/etc.

What you cannot do is just sit back and take that!

If they are 'crap' she won't want or miss them. Gather up the crap and give to someone else.

Mine both put on FB they had a lovely Chtistmas and great presents.

shock How ungrateful. Also highlights another reason I hate FB and Twitter, and the oversharing teenagers do on social networking sites. They see what everyone else has. angry

ZenNudist Thu 27-Dec-12 10:07:48

Teens expect too much. What did she get? Another one who thinks they should be taken back until she says sorry or charity shopped. Best to nip this kind of attitude in the bud.
