Now no offense meant... But...
It's comments like this, from people who think like yourself.... That irritate the heck out of me(I would be more explicit, but I'm behaving myself)!!!
Let your child earn their stripes... why should they be catered to and handed things on a silver platter.
Now I do know some people who have had things handed to them all their lives who are good people... But that's maybe 5% of those that I know who have been given everything.
The rest of them are full of themselves, and they know that Mommy and Daddy will always come around to bail them out if they get in trouble, and so they act as if what they do and how they act have no consequences or that they do not affect the people around them. All because you have decided they "deserve" more than somebody who doesn't have parents in the same financial position or with the same haughty opinion of themselves and/or their children.
You're child "deserves" nothing more than anybody else. If they are worthy of the things that they achieve then by all means I give them my respect and they should be recognized for those achievements.
Your child does not deserve good credit, as the saying goes... "It is a privilege, not a right"
