Child no.1 is constantly whining about being skint 'my friends get this, my friends get that'. Today's argument was she didn't want to walk to school, but didn't want to waste her money on the bus and that I should pay for it as it was my fault for buying a house so far from school. Yawn.
The constant battles are draining, I told her this morning, that every time she moaned and was ungrateful, I'd deduct £5 off the next month's amount. I suggested she get a paper round like both me and my husband did at her age, the look on her face was hilarious. Not quite sure why she's so entitled, our others aren't. Maybe it's a teenage girl thing?
