Sorry I'm not sorry.
the crappiest part is that the kids end up suffering because the parents are entitled self important blowhards. one of the responsibilities of parenthood is teaching your child how to be aware of their surrounding and considerate of others.
if everyone were to raise their kids in this absurd way, people would not be able to properly co-exist, do business with each other, negotiate.... because they are being taught that the only important thing in the world is their absolute happiness.
kids cant choose how they are brought up, they naturally and rightfully go with the assumption that their parents are doing right by them. and shitty parents generally raise shitty kids that generally become shitty people. its infuriating. its such a relief to know that not everyone is raising their kids that way.
That cupcake story is absurd. I just don't even know what I would have said.
oh i know exactly what i would have said. and how i would have said it.
