I got this email sent to me this morning...

Andy - I know you're going to shake your head at this, but I wanted to know if anyone else is as weak as I am at telling their kids no. Last week I took my six-year-old to the toy store to look for a gift. He was going to a birthday party, and we were looking for something cool for his friend. I probably shouldn't have taken my son with me, because he freaked out over a $300 Power Wheels toy. I told him he couldn't have it, and he squealed, cried, kicked and punched everything. As much as I tried, I couldn't stop him. And he caused a scene. To stop him from embarrassing me any further, I caved and bought him the stupid toy.

So, what is the most amount of money you ever spent to get your kids to be quiet?
