What part of "No" do kids not understand? They think they can whine at you and you will give in to their begging. It's bad enough when they are young, but when they are adults, it's even worse. I have one too many children who think Mom is made of taxi service, emergencies and money. I'm sure that somewhere along the line, we can blame one of the parents for being to easy on them. Now, I am reaping what I sowed or what the other parent sowed. Not fair, that I have to take their blame as well.
