All right, now can someone explain or remind me why it is that teens ( no offence to any of our teens here) always seem to think that parents are a bank? My step daughter called about an hour ago to inform her dad that she was going to her prom and she nor her mother had any money to pay for the prom outfit... Guess what, neither do we... Now don't get me wrong, i don't have any objection to paying stuff when it is required but in this case i'm totally against the going to the prom thing cuz she's not actually graduating high school; they are throwing her out cuz she's turning 18 and she's still in grade 9. I may sound really mean but in my view the high school prom is to celebrate the fact that you have worked hard and have gotten the diploma that comes from the work. Am i wrong???
I can understand she wants to go with her friends too... I get it but we still cannot afford the expenses of the whole prom thing. We are talking dress, shoes,purse, hair, make-up : a good what 500$... I mean that is 2/3 of our montly rent!
Pay-back is a bear it makes me wish i had been a better teen, maybe my karma as a step-mom wouldn't be so frustrating! On the other hand it's good practice for when I do actually have a kid of my own, right?
