A couple with three children hired a nanny to take care of their little ones. They decided to take an international trip and take their nanny along with them to give her a break. The husband and wife paid for everything, including first-class airfare for the nanny and her son. However, their entitled son overheard their conversation and asked why they were paying for first-class airfare when they were already paying for everything. When his parents explained it was a way to show appreciation for the nanny's hard work, the son refused to accept it and insisted that the nanny should go economy class. The parents stood their ground and even offered to pay for an upgrade for their son so he could see how privileged he is. However, the son didn't believe them and threw a tantrum when he realized he was really in economy class. Was this a reasonable way to show their son the value of money or did they go too far?

Son throws tantrum over economy seat on international flight 😠✈️
A family hired a nanny to take care of their children while they went on an international trip, paying for everything including the nanny's expenses. However, when the parents decided to pay for the nanny's first-class seat, their son threw a tantrum over his economy seat. The son had a complicated personality change at age 11 and became selfish and elitist. The parents cut their support on his perks and made him work part-time at age 16 to teach him financial responsibility. Despite everything, the son still threw a tantrum when he found out he would be sitting in economy class. The flight was uncomfortable for him, but the parents stood their ground. However, some family members criticized the parents for going too far. Do you think the parents were in the wrong? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
