Sarcasm accepted!

Is it any wonder kids don't know the value of money when parents buy them whatever they want as soon as it comes out!! Saw a kid on the bus with an IPad, he must have been 13 or something. Insane. Beat him up and stole it though so the balance is resumed!!

Then they end up like those kids on MTV's Sweet 16, there has never been a time when I've wanted to slap that many teenagers. What a pain in the ass they are.

They kick ass on call of duty, governments way of creating the new virtual soldiers for our cloned army men!

Thats assuming the parent bought it Some kids do appreciate the value of things and sell other items and save pocket money to get it!
Will remind my son not to take it on a bus near to where you live!

its only me

And more! He has more disposable income than I do!

damn, i'm going to a midnight opening to get mine!

Better the parents buy them, dont want the kids needing to peddle drugs just to buy an ipad.....

Assuming pocket money is £10 a month (seems reasonable given they have no expenses and assume parents but all clothes etc) it would take forever to save up for some of these things. Kids get too much too soon end of. Nothing wrong with a game console but 3!?! Also expensive gadgets are a big no no in my view. All that will happen is when he is 18 and the gravy train stops he will have a champagne lifestyle with a lager budget and will fund it with debt or prostitution.........possibly

He does not get pocket money - he works by doing shopping for old folks, walking their dogs & he sells his old stuff (in this case gave away his DSi) before he can have anything new.
As a parent I reward him because of his generosity (I bought him a game to go with it)

If you say so!!

if he does all this work and buys his own things then good on him. He will obviously learn that hard work equals rewards! nothing wrong with that.

have to say though I saved my money as a child to buy things and my parents wouldnt have let me spend it all on games consoles! some amount of guidance and control is a good thing no?

Good for him for working to get what he wants. But i do agree with other people about kids getting so much these days, and not realising the value of things. We live in such a disposable culture, my step son is learning the hard way now, that once his lap top breaks thats it. We will build him a desktop to have at our house, but he won't have a pc at his mums

If you dont spoil your children who will? And do you lot even have children doesent sound like it.
The best thing to spoil them with is time and love but a psp ps3 ds dsi 3ds wii and Xbox 360 doesent hurt imo.
At least you know where they are and what they are doing, No time for prostitution or drug dealing lol.
