I had a paper route when I was young. I wanted a lot of stuff but I had to earn it.

My kids now have to earn the stuff they want.
Sorry, but I'm kind of sensitive about this one. To clarify, I don't give them everything they want, I give them everything they need.

When I was a kid my mom wasn't always able to provide everything for us. We hardly had clothes that fit or shoes to wear. Sometimes the only thing we had to eat was at school. So I made a promise that my kids would never have to experience those same kind of hardships. Trust me, they're not fed with a silver spoon.
