Hugs! I dont know why anyone would expect a huge amount of cash to be given for b days or graduation. My son turns 18 soon. I will be spending the same amount on him I do every year. His graduation is the party we are throwing. I honestly didnt think anything else was expected.Ty I guess I just feel alot of pressure feel like I should be giving him a ton of money and I cant afford it. I am sure his dad will be giving him alot of cash and look down at me about this.
