The sheltered thing and not learning how to cook/clean may be a problem with the next generation of kids, and not having anything to do with being Italian. Maddy is just learning how to do laundry. She brought her notepad out and took notes. She doesn't really know how to do other things

No shit...I'm just as bad with my kids. Geez, I swore they'd have to work like I did, which was never as hard as my father worked when he was a kid. Pretty soon our kids won't be able to do anything..

Yeah, but she's 13, so at least she's starting relatively early. I'm not trying to bring this down to a race thing, I'm just relaying what I've observed.

But good for you for teaching her these things!

I was just having a talk with a co-worker about her daughter. This kid is going to be sheltered, cause she's already got the newest phones, the Juicy outifts, expensive perfumes, and is a brat and doesn't do anything.

I have a friend who is in her 20's, also very sheltered and she always comments on my cute apartment and stuff and I tell her that I work for it all, mommy and daddy do not pay for any of it.

Kids today

Really not THAT early. I'm not bringing it to a race thing either. I just see it that kids seems to have it good cuz the parents do everything for them. I had Maddy make me some tea last night. She wasn't sure what to do. I said just boil some water (she makes ramen all the time). And she'll help Dad when he makes breakfast on Sunday mornings (waffles) and she'll occasionally make cookies from scratch. Usually the store bought refrigerated kind too, the ones you just pop in the oven.



Hi Amy

Amy...

Lila, I know what you mean, my 11 y.o. still wants me to cut his waffles for him... I told him to figure it out for himself...let's just say there was a lot of waffle and syrup on the table by the end of the meal...

My daughter is at least interested in helping and being a little more independent...

kids today is right

Maddy is more grounded/level headed (I'd like to think). She knows when we shop when things are overpriced or expensive or just not even in the realm of being considered for purchase. I rarely buy myself stuff anymore cuz of the expense. And times have been tougher the last year or two. She wanted to do stuff around the house to earn money, but even that's difficult. I don't really feel she should be paid for doing things like keeping the house or her room clean or other "chores". Those should just be done. No one is paying me! We have a cleaning crew come once a month to clean the house, so if we let them go & Maddy wants to take over, we'd pay her. But she'll be entering high school in the fall, and I don't see her having much free time at all. She doesn't have a lot now as it is She's growing up so fast
