January 12, 2007 7:20am CST
i try not to totally spoil my kids but they get enough . however they often compare how much their friendfs get and think they come off badly . at xmas i spend up on £250 on each of them . birthdays i spend over £100 and they get clothes and bits and pieces all the year round , also £5 a week pocketmoney . the girls are 13 and this not enough? theyre good kids and i think they know i get them plenty but i feel guilty sometimes that im not handing them lots of dosh . am i doing ok?

Well it entirely depends on their needs...coz. giving them more than they need will only inccite them to spend mre...and thats where the problem starts...well.....Its all uto u to understand their need and act accordingly

well it never seems enough to them i think what u r giving is good enough besides money in the hands of teens can also be dangerous coz they might spend it somewhere unwanted
