Bolded.

I'm 22. I grew up in a family that "made ends meet." I'm not about to have kids but from looking around at the generation population I can say that my kids will get MAYBE 50% of what they WANT.

If my kid asks for anything when they're going into Grade 6.. I'll tell them to get a job. I had one at that age and understand money VERY well. I didn't have such a great childhood because I worked my ass off to get what I wanted, but I'm happy now and I'm not a spoiled little prick of a kid.

You can spoil your kids all you want, as long as they understand what's right and wrong.. and understand that a credit card is NOT a unlimited source of money.
(Yes I know LOTS of kids growing up thinking this right now.. it's fucking sad.)

I think due to unemployment and other economical factor the people now don't have more money to spend on that things.that's why they are going to unaffordable. And also they are charging more for meet their expenses.

That comment was TOTALLY worth reviving a thread that has been dead for 4 months.

Absolutely brilliant!
