Social Dilemma - How Much Should You Spend on Your Kid's Jeans?

Today's social dilemma comes from Pam who is having a bit of a parenting issue.

Hi Jaime.  Please look at this social dilemma.  I would love it if you could talk about it because I think it's crazy, but my daughter is fighting me every step of the way.   My daughter is 14 years old, and I know that at that age, being cool is very important but here's the problem.  There's a pair of jeans that she desperately wants that she swears all the other girls in school are wearing.  The jeans cost $124!!!!!!!!!  I don't want to sound old but my mother would have never spent that much money on my jeans.  I want my daughter to feel accepted by her friends, but I think that's way too much for a 14 year old to spend on jeans. I think it's way too much for me to spend on jeans.  I told her I would think about it, but the truth is, I just don't think I can do it.  I know we can find nice jeans for half of that price.  So if think this is a good social dilemma would you talk about it.  I listen every morning and would love to hear what other parents think.  Thank you so much - Pam

Pam, I'm with you.  I think that's waaaaaay too much to spend on jeans for a 14 year old, or a 45 year old for that matter, but that's just me.  You know what I always say.  If you have the money and if that's what's important to you, then go for it.  Me, the most I've spent on jeans is about 50 bucks.  But I know this, money or not, I wouldn't spend that much on jeans for a kid.  What do you think?  Let's give Pam some good advice.  Help her out!!
