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.

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)
