Maybe it's just me......

By now most of you have probably seen the YouTube videos of kids who didn't get what they wanted for Christmas.  Jimmy Kimmel ran a couple, that on the surface are funny, but as I watched them, I found disheartening.  

The children's reactions to the prank gifts was probably predictable in today's world, but a sad commentary on the way they're being raised.  Raised to expect the best always, and to refuse to accept anything less.  What happened to being grateful for what you are given and have?  

The fact of the matter is, we don't always get what we want.......but then again, maybe it's just me........I would be embarrassed if one of these videos had my child or grandchild as the "star".
