My mom cut it off when she found out. Their youngest just started school, so now she is watching the credit card better. They didn't think she would do something so obnoxious but overheard her bragging about it to another family member. [ Reply | More ]

My stepdad makes a good living, but he is not super wealthy. My mom typically handles the finances. She works and makes a decent living. They share their funds. [ Reply | More ]

Just because your mom "handles" the finances does not mean she gets to make all decisions. I am guessing her "decent living" is less than his "good living" and they both know it. Butt out. [ Reply | More ]

she does & obviously parents don't care or they would have cancelled the card. my brother and i grew up in the same household. i always hated taking from my parents. he seems to find any opportunity to take & they give. i really don't care. my life is tremendously better than his. it's not my money, it's my parent's money and if they choose to keep giving to him that is their decision.

Agreed. The only protection dad's kids is legal (as in mom getting child support, etc). Dad's new wife will put her kid's first, and sometimes her kid's do not even realize it is happening. [ Reply | More ]

That was my point. You would never tell a childless person, who has been trying to have children, to just enjoy what she has rather than dwelling on what she doesn't. If someone wants more children and a bigger family, it's not something you can just blessing-count away. [ Reply | More ]
