In the first instance, the new service or amenity generates yet another income-based difference in how students experience life on the same campus. 4 0 obj Entitlement, you see, works both ways. <> In an emotional sense, you are losing your daughter. She wants us to give her spending money, she wants to visit her boyfriend on work days and school days, wants the car on weekends to visit her boyfriend and feels that having a part-time job would ruin her social life. Her boyfriend didn’t have a license and she was doing all the driving to see him. Your relationship with your daughter has become a business relationship rather than parent-daughter.
