My sweet little cousin has turned into a disrespectful turd and all I want is to smack her upside the head. She is 15 and expects everything to be handed to her and my aunt is constantly giving into her. Last Christmas she got a $500 dollar camera because she wanted to take pictures, well a few weeks later she used it once and then threw it at her dog because he was barking so much, (according to her it was the dog’s fault) needless to say it broke so they bought her a new camera but it was only $200 dollars. Like that is much better, I would have made her buy her own damn camera. Then she wanted an ipod touch and got that for her birthday which was 2 months away, washed it with her clothes 2 weeks later. This was her mom’s fault because she should have washed the clothes. Then since she didn’t have it anymore and therefore no birthday present her parents bought her a $300 prom dress as a freshman for her birthday, in her words “It was alright” Then she wanted a lizard, gave it away 2 weeks later because it was too hard to take care of and no one would do it for her. Then her horse was to slow for barrel racing so she needed a new horse, got that too. Then basketball was in the way of barrel racing so she stopped playing after her parents paid $400 for her to be on a club team. They don’t have a lot of money but they just keep spending it on her. Last she got a wii a few weeks ago because her and her friends needed more things to keep them busy. Well I just got off the phone with her. She yelled at me for over an hour saying that I had her stupid wii. She brought it to our house for Thanksgiving so we could play it and now she can’t find the thing so it must be at my house and I must be keeping it from her because I want it (let me just throw in that I don’t enjoy video games and only played one game while she was here. So why would I be the one to lie about having it?) It just ticks me off because I have always been there for her and now she is being so disrespectful to me. I always kept silent about her expensive gifts and her not treating them well but this is about all I can take. I feel like my aunt is setting her up for failure, she doesn’t appreciate anything and blames all the bad stuff on everyone else and I refuse to be her scapegoat. I don’t want to over step my bounds but I can’t take this anymore, we’re a close family and talk about pretty much anything but I feel like talking to them about this would take it too far. Any advice?????
