A STUNNED mum has confessed her 10 year old daughter is expecting an iPhone, iPad & laptop for Christmas.
The shocked mum shared her daughters extensive list online.
She said her daughter wants: “Mainly a new iPhone (she doesn’t have a phone at all yet!) make up (not keen on this) an iPad and a laptop might but also a £235 school trip in May.”
Hannah who goes by, @hannahhomeeducates was discussing the other mums extensive request with her daughter Ayla in a video online.
The mum discussed with her daughter how they were budgeting £100 for her Christmas gift.
When hearing about the other childs request Ayla declared the child was asking for too much.
Ayla said: “It’s too many screens, get her toys.”
Hannah said: “My take on this is it’s an extortionate amount of money for what she has listed, it doesn’t sound like stuff a 10 year old I think they would naturally gravitate towards.”
She said: “Kids are bombarded with Christmas adverts and unrealistic materialist content plus they have less time to free play, so their ideas of what they want/need have become unhinged.”

“Personally I would get a second hand iPad and a nice case if I was getting a gadget as a Christmas gift.”
“I use my phone every day for work and waited until I really needed it to order a new one (and that’s second hand too!) so a 10 year old might want a new phone but there we go!”
Hannah claimed: “Again if you do get a child a new phone no judgement, they might be really into all the features and tech and that’s ok too- just don’t go into debt for Christmas.”
Other parents agreed that the 10 year old was asking for too much.
One mum said: “My son 13 got his first phone when he was 11 & was literally £40. He got a newer one last year but even at that it was £100.”
Another said: “My ten year old son’s pens cost 200 quid.”
“My daughter has a school trip in Feb which is £280. This has been counted as a Christmas present too,” said a third.
A fourth parent confessed: “My son is 6 and desperate for a switch, it’s so hard to say no though when every single one of his friends has one.”
Some parents said their kids were a lot more reasonable with their requests.
One user said: “My daughter is 18 on Saturday and all she has asked for is a pair of crocs and a new yeti water bottle..”

Another said: “My son wants a €10 minecraft sword. I asked him if he would like to upgrade to the light up one and he said no.”
“My daughter’s 11th bday is coming up…All she wants is squishmallows, I said anything else or just those and she said just as many squishmallows as I can,” a third said.
