    In spite of the times, that kid needs a good old-fashioned spanking.

    Probably too late for that.

    Might be a better idea to end the gifts, turn the kid out, put him on his own, and let him grow up a bit. When parents give their kids "everything" in the material world, the kids end up empty of maturity and responsibility.

    If everything is free, then nothing has value.
