Why do parents give so many kids anything they want?

Especially for clothes. When i was a kid i was lucky to get one pair of jeans a year. I don't see the point!
Now kids spend hundreds of dollars on clothes from there parents when in reality they do nothing to earn it.

I see so many kids now that ask there parents for all this money and they just hand over! Half of them can't even afford it.

My parents both were poor, and growing up my parents taught all three of us kids the responsabilites of handling our money, buying our own cars, paying insurance, doctor bills, gas, rent, clothes all at the age of 17. At first i thought it was mean, but now i thank them for it.

When i see the kids that get spoiled like theres no tomorrow, i think to myself the parents must have gotten all that they wanted too. I feel for those kids cause when they go out on their own they wont know that the world is going to smack them right i the face!

Hope that novel helped you! Lol

Most likely the parents of these children felt very much like you do when they were children. They remember not getting very much very often and so they want to spoil their children. This isn't the best idea however, as they will think everything will come this easy. Real life will be a shock for these kids as they get older. Just remember this when you have kids too, make them work a little for the bonus : ) they will learn a valuable life lesson and will love you that much more for it later.

I think it's because they don't know how to raise their kids. Some parents have really good money, big houses, and new cars. Therefore, they give their kid whatever they want when they want it. Like I'm 14, never had anything simply "handed to me" in life. I'm so different from everyone in school. It's like you see outgoing kids, disrespecting their teachers, wearing certain clothes, going with trends, texting in class, talking back to their parents, etc. That's not me. I just feel like my parents raised my brother and I "right". And we're country, so that might help our case. ;)

Out of gulit for their lack of parenting skills, or lack of quality time they should be spending with them.
