If you were this woman’s parent, what would you do?
Ken Gallinger writes in the Toronto Star HERE about a Millennial daughter who is throwing a hissy fit because she believes she’s not being treated fairly by her parents.
The parents offered to cover most of the tuition bill racked up by she and her brother.
Her brother went to university, received $40,000 from the parents, and then when he married a few years later, received $5,000 towards the cost of the private wedding ceremony.
The daughter, however, decided to skip university and become a cosmetician. She runs a successful business. Now she’s planning on getting married.
The reception will cost $25,000 – and she wants mom and dad to cover the bill.
She argues that because she didn’t take advantage of the tuition offer, she should be able to transfer it to her wedding.
The parents said that would only extend the same $5,000 gift to her wedding that her brother received, but daughter wasn’t happy with that counter.
Now, neither party are speaking with one another.
Should the parents pony up? Is this yet ANOTHER example of the entitlement of the Millennial generation?
