What's that got to do with it?

Most people will find the post crass.

£800 is ridiculous, and you know it. They will grow up spoilt.

bit harsh commenting on someone's parenting skills when you have no clue about it yourself

So is £800 an appropriate amount to spend on children at Christmas? You've dodged the question so far.

Everyone on here is thinking the same thing, they're just too polite to say so.

If he has 10 kids I will apologise.

I'd say that it's more disgusting to bump a thread up about Christmas in effing October.

I'm pretty sure he bumped it just to show off how much he's spent.

As I said, crass.

Tinned Toms - You know it makes sense!

I've got 3 kids. If you split that 800 quid between them then that works out at 266 quid each. If you only had one child whom you spent £266 on at Christmas would you honestly consider that excessive. Anyone who has kids knows Christmas can be expensive, which is why we save all year to plan for it. Stuff these days is a rip off and if you have children of certain ages you are buying stuff like bikes and tablets and games consoles etc. The one and only time of the year my kids get spoilt is Christmas and if you can't spoil them then, when can you? 

People comment on how they are going on holidays and the majority of those holidays will cost more than I've spent on Christmas, so it's nowt to do with showing off. 

Commenting on my parenting skills when you're clearly talking out of your arse is out of line, even for you. You know fuck all.

Given the fact that I got banned for commenting on a member's family situation when I merely pointed out that KP's mrs isn't British, I reckon Whittam deserves at least a month in the tank for these comments.

Push that button, mods.

The fact you don't see spending £266 on one child as excessive and immoral says more about you than me.

The fact no one is jumping in to defend you says it all.

Excessive and immoral? You don't half talk shite sometimes. 

For arguments sake, you buy this games console for your child at Christmas. 
http://www.game.co.uk/en/m/xbox-one-s-fifa-17-special-edition-bundle-storm-grey-500gb-1621649

It costs more than the whole budget of Christmas in your opinion. So what do you do? Have your kid walk into the room on Christmas day and there is one solitary present? It just doesn't work like that and you know it. Come back and have this argument when you have kids. I guarantee you'll be telling a different story.

You really are making yourself look a dick. So if I had a child I'd suddenly think spending ridiculous amounts on them would be good for them?

Buy a second hand Xbox One, there are loads on eBay.

The fact is you are bringing your kids up with the wrong attitude. No doubt they'll go to school and laugh at the poor suckers who only got a second hand Xbox One, or worse, no console at all.

As long as the kids appreciate what they get, that's what matters.  You want the best for your children, So if your children want something and you can afford it, then do it.  Doesn't mean they're spoilt.

You'd class an Xbox One as "the best"? Fuck me, is that what parenting has come to, consoles are now good for your children?

Nat, stop goading 58. He's right about affording as much as he can. Its what he wants to do, its what the kids like, he can afford it, so what's the problem ? If he gets to a a time when he is unable to, then it would be wrong for him to go OTT. The looks on their faces, and the excitement of getting just what they asked for, is worth every penny.
All parents have been through periods where they can't afford a lot for presents, and its painful when it happens. 

58, enjoy it mate, such times are what memories are made of, for you, and the family.

Im with 58 on this.  I work my bollocks off.  I have 5 days away in a lodge in the uk in the summer holidays and i spoil my kids at xmas with money i have earned and saved.

Nothing wrong with it at all.

Its got f all to do with parenting skills or showing off.

You all seem to be missing the point.

I know you mean well, but by spoiling your kids you are just encouraging them to become spoilt brats. The fact they are asking for Xbox Ones and the like shows that's the sort of present they expect. It's not particularly special to them, they just expect mummy and daddy to provide that sort of thing.

If they got it on a random wednesday mid june with no reason other than little tarquin wanted it because he was bored of his ps4, wii u etc then yeah.  But this is different.  If my kids were bad kids and didnt behave and they were disrespectful little oiks then they wouldnt get shit.  But they arent.  They are good kids who do well at school, wrll mannered and they do well with the various activities they do.

Not necessarily Nat. Have you not thought that the kids have always had this level of care and money spent on them, and they think its normal, and when they ask for it, its quite acceptable to both sides, (within reason.) ?
Kids know when they are asking for to much   Both my daughters went through a phase where they wanted to a copy of the Argos catalogue, so they could make a list. (all part of the fun, and no, they didn't get everything they asked for) Very Happy

Well, we'll wait 10 years and see how these kids turn out.

I think I'll be right.
