This mom epitimizes what is wrong with so many parents today. Heaven forbid this little brat goes a few days without his damn GameBoy! That kid, like every other kid who is overindulged by his or her parents, is going to grow up thinking that all their problems are going to be taken care of by mommy (cuz daddy often isn't around), and if that balance of power ever shifts, junior, not being able to cope, is gonna do something like shoot up his school or something.
We gotta learn to let kids deal with a little adversity or they're not going to learn to be functional human beings! Protecting them from harm is fine, but at the same time we gotta let them deal with problems on their own.
Sorry for the rant, but this kind of thing, and this kind of parent, disgusts me.
