Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Same here! My mother gave me an allowance of 40.00 a month - which SOUNDS like a lot, but I had to buy ... [snip!] ... use our money to buy. You wouldn't BELIEVE how quickly a 14 year old girl learns to bargain shop when it's her own money. "
Quoting Leannah Carrasco:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Rd.:</b>" Saying you're wearing old clothing from before you ... [snip!] ... I never said we couldnt feed them .... And if the clothes still fit and arent holes i n the crouch and butt why not wear them"I never said that you said you couldn't feed them. I don't think you're number one parent just because you go without all the time.
Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Oh, god no! ewww....no. We still have some in diapers, so I haven't really come upon that yet, but no.....new panties for us. "
Quoting **Blessed Insanity **:" Yeah I never even got an allowance, I ended up finding jobs at 14 so that I could buy my own clothing ... [snip!] ... for those life lessons cause I really think it taught me alot on what is really important and what isnt as far as getting by."
Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Totally! The cleaning thing took me a while, lol. I moved out at 16 and my first apartment with my brother ... [snip!] ... of college guys (yes, such a wonderful situation, my mom let me make wonderful choices, lol) and they were just as nasty. "
Quoting Chicken Noodle Soup:" I think it's fine if he helps her out with rent and stuff so she can get back on her feet. But if she's not bothering to help herself, that's a whole other ball game imo."
Quoting GL♣05/08/2013:" <blockquote><b>Quoting 3 little monsters:</b>" How are you going to complain about ... [snip!] ... an inflatable Santa for the front yard. "</blockquote> Wait, is he paying every month or did he only help this month.?"
Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Since she keeps changing her story, we have no idea, but from the original post - she asks for little ... [snip!] ... this month asked for help with rent. Supposedly so she could buy an iPhone, but I don't really believe much of what she says. "
