Mom’s birthday list goes viral – Have parents just gone too far? – Poll

Here’s another frightening reminder that maybe parents have just gotten too over the top with their demands for their kids. A mother’s letter to a group of people expected to attend her son’s birthday party went viral after she put some crazy demands in the email.

Not only did she put in specific requests for gifts, but she also had this to say in the email:

If you choose to get (name) something that isn’t on this list… please be sure to always include a receipt going forward. When we return items without receipts, we only get about 50% of the value, so it is like throwing money away…


You can see the full letter below:

Mom creates an incredibly demanding birthday letter

As Dennis and Judi have pointed out, have parents gone too far in demands for their children? Whether it is their demands for the child’s birthday party or their laundry list of things the kid is or isn’t allowed to do on a play date, has it all just gotten out of hand?

Take the poll below and let us know your opinion.
