Sweet Sixteen gone sour.

The sweet sixteenth birthday has been taken to a new level and gone sour as a lemon. Big headed, self-obsessed, materialistic attention seeking teenagers is all you will find on this T.V programme.

I find it hard to believe that there are children out there that declare to their parents a $40, 000 car is too inexpensive for their special day. I don't know about you, but to me this is delusional and I blame their loving parents almost totally for their behaviour. How and why would you take this programme seriously? The girls have not even developed breasts yet, but their parents are quite happy to let them prance around as-if they're on a street corner at 1am on a Saturday night shift.

In one episode, a well-off preacher in Cleveland threw his daughter a sweet sixteenth party. Now I know in the bible it states love your neighbour as you love yourself, but this girl had forgotten about her neighbour and loved her-self and her fathers money a bit too much. Three different scooters were her main presents, THREE SCOOTERS! What the hell is she going to do with three scooters? Why is one scooter not enough for the preachers daughter? Is greed not a sin? I can see how her fathers preaching is teaching her the important values of life, or is it his money?

Don't get me wrong, it makes great T.V however cringe worthy, you just love to hate these people. But isn't there a bigger message in this? About society and how not to be? A more fitting title for this programme would be Spoilt Brats, because that is all they are.
