What's The Most Outrageous Way You've Seen A Parent Spoil Their Child?

Most parents want the world for their kids, but understand that giving them too much or making their lives too easy isn’t good for them. Some parents, though, spoil their kids — like REALLY spoil their kids — to the point where it makes your jaw hit the floor.

Maybe, for example, you went to a kid’s birthday party where absolutely no expense was spared, and it was closer to the pomp of a wedding than anything else.

Or maybe the parents got their kid an expensive car before they were even old enough to drive! It doesn’t have to be a rich family…it could be a less well-off family that nonetheless spends all their time and money to realize their kid’s most unreasonable demands, like getting their grade schooler the latest phone on the market.

Maybe the parents NEVER say “no” to their kid, and give in to even the most ridiculous requests, like leaving work to bring them fast food because the kid decided they don't like their packed lunch.

Perhaps their kid didn’t like doing their homework, so their parents do it for them, or pay a tutor to do it!
