Hi, Please go back and reread Wandajeans advice. I am a parent of 2 adult children. I know that you are upset, and I do disagree with their answer without discussion. It is fine to vent here. In fact this is the perfect place...I do it myself. But you really need to win your parents over on this issue, and the attitude that it is your money and they have no right to tell you what you can buy... will not fly. At least it would not at my house. Calm discussion such as Wandajean suggests would have gotten my kids a lot closer to their goal. I am totally on your side about keeping your accounts open and being able to buy something as innocent as a webkinz, especially with money that you earn. But once again, right or not, when parents hear an attitude they sometimes just shut out your reasoning. Try to get your thoughts together and all of your reasons ready and ask for some time when you can sit and have a serious talk. Let them know how much this means to you...calmly. Please do not bring up your mother's antiques to her. I can just about guarantee that she will not see the analogy and she will resent the comparison. You can do this. Once again, I agree with you. I am just suggesting a calmer approach which will help show your maturity about making decisions on how you spend your money.
I know that you want a real one, but another possibility might be a virtual pet.
I hope that all of this works out for you. I know that it is really a stressful situation and there is already too much stress in your life.
simple get your own money and buy 2... hope this helps!
well it's just that i do buy webkinz with my own money and i always have. my parents just don't want me spending my money on them

i do!! that's why i find this all so unfair, because my parents are teling me that i can't spend the money i earned on what i want and they say i am too old for them, when there are people like 40 years older than me playing with them, they just don't understand

My friends little girl had the same problem recently. Her mom said that she was spending too much of her money on the "toys". So, she decorated two jars, one that had "webkinz $$" on it, and one that had "savings $$". She comprimised with her mom in a way the when she gets her allowance, 1/2 can go in her webkinz jar, and the rest in her savings jar. Her mom though that was an excellent idea. Now, when she saw that there were 5 new pets comming out, she did extra chores for her mom and the neighbors to fill up the jar!
