I had the same conversation with my daughter Hannah the other day (Shes 12) I 
wouldn't let them be school dinners, this is because one day turns into two 
then three and so on. I said that we were saving for our holiday, I needed to 
buy a new surround sound system and the wife needed a new CD player for the 
kitchen both items are for use within the home and can be used by all of us.

Hannah threw a fit complaing at the amount I had spent and that I would not 
pay for school dinners! Like you I had to sit down and explain that I worked 
to provide for the family and that certain payments benefit one person and 
other purchases benefit all.

Surfice to say it cost me a £50 Nicky Clarke hair set :-(

I don't see anything wrong with that, natural fatherly protection I know what 
blokes are like and what they want, after all I used to be one :-)

The twins (my girls) have a friend who's mum & dad are lottery winners their 
house is massive with a big f-off boat and top of the range motors on the 
drive, I keep hinting that they should invite her round more often, I mean 
her mum and dad might like me :-)
