A new survey says parents think kids are more spoiled than they were 10 years ago. The 'rents also think kids have too much say in family decisions. Sounds like a whole lotta crap...

A new survey put out by a bunch of stat masters working for CNN and Time Magazine say kids are more spoiled and get their way more often than kids did 10 years ago? That's what parents think anyway...

80% of the 'Rents Think Kids are More Spoiled Today Than They Were 10 Years Ago.

Whatever! If kids are really so spoiled, how come it's even harder for a kid to go see a movie with naked people in it or go play 1

Nearly 50% of Parents Believe Kids Have Too Much of a Role in Family Decisions.

Hey, the more influence kids have, the better. Kids still have to ride in the back of the car which their parents decide to buy. They have to mow the lawn with the crappy mower Dad decides is a great deal and they have to go to the same place parents think is a great vacation spot. Obviously, kids should have a big say in these family decisions. Even if parents think kids have too much influence, it's probably still not enough.

75% of Parents Say Kids have Fewer Chores to do than Children did 10 or 15 Years Ago.

Well, duh?! We're not living in the stone age where people have to go hunting for food or make their own clothes. Obviously there are less chores to do now than there used to be. Rather than taking these stupid surveys, they should be working on ways to get rid of chores completely.

71% Think Kids See Too Much Advertising about Toys and Games They Can Buy.

Hey, kids aren't robots. Just because they see an ad, it doesn't mean kids are going to want to buy it. Parents are exposed to way too much advertising themselves and are just as likely to buy something crappy based on a flashy ad as kids are.

1What's Causing Arguments Between Parents and Kids?

  • 62% say cleaning up their room (If parents didn't keep poking their nosey heads inside kids' rooms, they wouldn't have anything to worry about.)
  • 55% say fights between brothers and sisters.
  • 48% say kids staying up late.

I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.

Personally I think you should just find things you like and wear them without worrying about what style it fits in to. You should express yourself, not conform to other people's views/standards. :)
