Why can't 17 yr old son get him self some odd jobs to pay for the football then?My problem is my 17 yr old son who LOVES OSU football and my renter who LOVES not only football, but the horse racing channel. My son can't get OSU football in Florida without a ESPN channel that only comes with the 250 channel package.
I ask him to be frugal is so many places, I hate to cut him out on his football also. Call it guilty mom syndrome :abduct:
Mamas dont let your babies grow up to be Greebo lol Sorry Greebo when I read your post that song flashed thru my mind I couldnt resistWhy can't 17 yr old son get him self some odd jobs to pay for the football then?
TV is a LUXURY. It won't hurt him ONE BIT if you make him pay for his own luxuries. He'll just make it *sound* like it hurts.
I'll tell you, it would have done me a world of good if my parents had taught me that it takes work to have the things we want in life. Instead they, like you, were extremely frugal, except, like you, with their son. It was not beneficial to me. Please, don't be like my mom was. Don't teach him that just because he wants it a lot he just gets it. Teach him to work for it - don't let him grow to be 35 like I was before that lesson sinks in.
