I love how people are saying that these people are living off of their parents money. Doesn’t everyone live off of their parent’s money for the first 10-15 years of their life? I bet most people complaining used the money that they saved up as a kid on stuff that are probably compacted in a landfill right now.

Kids should really focus on school and all of that; but not even schools teach you how to negotiate and earn money, etc.

Where do the kids get the money to buy the shoes ? Are they funded by the parents ? One could only assume, which means they had to work none, their parents just gave them the money and the kid just made even more money off money they didn’t even earn, so thus the get no work ethic which is crucial but something we see less and less in this generation.

Birthday money, Christmas, selling other items they have and trading. Most "spoiled" kids are expected to make good grades and do chores, when they don't they lose what they are given. One could say the constantly deprived "poor kid" gets so used to having nothing that they grow up expecting very little and don't strive for more. While they get help from their parents, they usually end up making more money and having nice things. The poor kid like I was may strive to do better than his parents, but more often they just end up being stuck in poverty just like them.
