I spent quite a lot for the last two weeks, so starting from Dec 4th, I've spent the least money until the required average. I must save for my travel at the end of this year. My eldest daughter keeps nagging about wanting to replace her phone. I said to her that I am saving some for that. Will you fulfill what your children want?

Our 'boys' are 45 and 43 so it isn't such a problem for us. Neither of them are financially stable though.

It depends on how you handle it for they are your father. Our suggestion may not be feasible or reasonable for you or you may have a solution to their request. The decision lies in your hand. Be intelligent and reasonable enough to tell your children on whatever decision you may have had.

I didn't buy my kids phones until they could pay for the monthly bills, but my grandchildren have phones and they are too young to work.

This is why I'm single because of this, your life isn't yours anymore and must contribute it to your child.

I need to work hard if my kids need to get something. But my hubby will make sure those things they need are not working, worn out, broken, faulty. If old and outdated things, those reasons are not accepted.
