My ex wants to give our 16 yr old daughter his car and asked me to pay $3000, which is 1/2 the current value. And expects me to split the cost of insurance as well. He seems to have a very different philosophy on raising children than I. He is remarried with a dual income and no additional children. I'm remarried and grew my family from 3 to 6 with very little additional income. My husband & I make a very good living but live and budget very responsibly. Putting the money factor aside, as principle, I feel children should earn all the things they WANT and as they grow older, earn some of the things they NEED and NOT give to them for free every single thing they need and want. How do I deal with this?
