Get real, Hanna!

This is in response to a viral video:

Dear Hanna,
“The cleaning lady” is payed for by parents for their convenience not yours. She is there to help them do their chores, which includes taking care of you. Your chores are to teach you to be responsible and to help your parents, who obviously both work so that you can have things like a nice roof over your head and a computer to complain on FB. You have no idea how hard it is in this society to make money, own a home, put food on the table, cloth and feed two children and give them extras like computers, ipods, etc. When you have a real job, you might understand that, and that is possibly why your parents have asked you to get one, so you get a clue.
Here’s the reality of life: No one owes you anything in life. It is up to you to make your life interesting and that is only accomplished through education and working hard. I applaud your parents for trying to instill some wisdom and a work ethic in you at such a young age. With so many children running around these days, and this includes your friends, thinking that the world owes them a living, and parents doing nothing to quell this, I think your parents are heroes.
The bottom line is, get real, Hanna, and get a little humility and gratitude. You’ll be happier and so will your parents.
