Essentially. Somehow this was offensive to others because she bought her kids so many gifts.

To be fair, that sounds like a stupid thing to do and does sound like a great way to ensure a child turns out to be a spoiled adult, too.

But harsh lessons will come sooner or later, so I wouldn't be too concerned about it. If she does successfully spoil her kid, she will be the one having to deal with the mess.

I'm not one to be a theologian, but excess is a common sin found in many cultures for a reason. Whatever. It's her kid. It is also entirely possible he'll turn up to be a great adult.

Well it depends, it says she's a mother of three, is that single mother who claims benefits or does she work? If it's the latter she can do what she wants with her money. If she don't work however then she's a moron.

My opinion, either way the kids will become spoilt, feel left out in school because other kids will be jealous and the fact she had to show it all off all because of bad parenting.

yeah, those kids are going to become spoiled and what is she going to do for next year's Christmas. the kids are going to be expecting the same amount of present or more and become bratty when they don't get the same amount.

Do I think this was smart? Oh heck no, 300 presents between 3 kids... No kid needs 100 presents for Christmas

However, that's her business, don't come crying to me when you realize that you spent your food budget on presents

Geez people really need to stop being so "offended"

She has 3 kids so I assume there is 100 for each?
Either way though, if that's photo the gifts itself don't look all that big though. She says she spend nearly 2300. She could have bought some or most of online or at a 'cheap' store for under 8 bucks for all we know. Or she could have been saving up for it.

I have a little nice and my parents love her dearly. She get's super excited when she opens up presents, so this year my mother started Christmas shopping for her presents on the summer. Most of them are worth under five bucks.


All in all, I think people are g over reacting. So what, is the issue that she is spoiling her kids? Is there a law against that? No there isn't. If they care so much, then everyone back slashing on her should spend their own money and time trying to make a law against it instead of siting behind their scree judging and calling her names.

Then let them be jealous. A parent shouldn't value the potential for jealousy of other kids, because their parents lack the means to do the same for them. Nor it should a parent feel ashamed or bad because they decide to show off their kid gifts.
Being friend with kids or people who would isolate you, because you can afford more things than they can. They are scum and are not worth a moment of thou.

And there noting wrong with Spoiling your kids. You can have spoils kids and still have discipline. Your opinion is stupid. Is the equivalent of saying. Don't show off your kid talents, because you may spoil the kid or make other kids jealous. This people and this argument is asinine.

The Christmas spirit became competitive. That many presents just pisses everyone else off because they believe that they are lesser than someone who can buy a really high amount.
