Interestingly, some of these parents go out of their way to make sure their children kids have the best time for their prom. But when is it going too far?

Leah's expensive primary school prom

Jennifer Roberts, a teaching student, and her husband Dean, a wielder, have spent a whooping £1,000 on their daughter Leah's prom.

Jennifer admits that her 11-year-old daughter has always been a bit of a diva and it is impossible to say no to her.

"I'm really soft on her, so within reason, she'll always get the things she wants."

Jennifer and her husband do not see anything wrong in spending £1000 on a primary school prom because they can afford it.

Also, given that their older daughter did not want to go for her prom, they decided to spend all the money on Leah.

The extravagant parents hired a two-horse carriage that cost £350 because Leah did not want to ride in a limo.

Also, they got her a unique adult dress that cost £410, alongside hair, makeup, accessories, and a balloon display that cost £200.

While Jennifer knows a lot of eyebrows are raised at the amount spent on her daughter's prom, she believes it is not too much if it means fulfilling her daughter's wish.

"I think the important thing was that my little girl got to have the day she envisioned in her head and I wanted to make it a reality for her."

Leah was happy that her parents fulfilled her every wish, and Jennifer is sure that their daughter would not forget this day in a long time.

How to avoid spoiling children

Giving a child everything they demand does not show that you love the child. It could lead to them being spoiled children, and no one wants that.

Here's How you can avoid spoiling your child.

  • Teach your child the value of money by showing them how much things cost;
  • Be an example and show your child how to be kind and charitable.
  • Teach your child how to conduct themselves properly and correct them when they are wrong. Don't be afraid to discipline them;
  • Teach and show your child how to appreciate people. They must learn always to say thank you.
