I'm really tired of working and going to University every day, it's becoming stressful. My dad is a well-known plastic surgeon in my area and has been making all that money for years, and my mum is a lawyer. Basically, they have a couple of millions. I must be honest, I did ask my dad for a million because... who doesn't like money? He said no and I'm fine with that, but shouldn't he help me pay for University at the very least? Also, I'd like to buy a cheap car but my dad says I have to save up to buy one. Really, he's got all that money, why can't he just give me a few hundred euros every now and then? I can't fucking believe it. If I had a son/daughter and two million euros in my pockets, I'd give them half the money, for sure!

My dear, I come from one of the wealthiest and most powerful families on the earth today, and I can tell you, I refuse their money, I would rather work in the sun all day for my food!
You sit in comfort and luxury while the vast majority of the world struggles, and suffers in poverty that you could not comprehend. If you were forced to endure it for a week, without the hope of the money you do have, I believe you would suffer from PTSD and that is not a joke or a lie.
We do not know how we will pay our bills in full, some of us worry if we will even have a home. So we plan on living in a vehicle, using restrooms in shopping malls, keeping water in jugs, buying food as we can afford it, being hassled about just parking a vehicle there for a night or two.
Are you prepared for that? No? Then you do not know what it means to live.
When I worked for a high end clothing store, there was a young woman who came from a wealthy construction family. Her sister was given a brand new BMW, and all the money she could use. But this lady, I was her boss, she wanted to work for her money.
She had honor.
As you progress in life, you will understand that honor is by far, the most important thing you can possess, a good name, they cannot be bought with money, in fact, your name can be tarnished just by having lots of money.
Your father is absolutely correct. How badly do you want your education? Bad enough to work for it? I GUARANTEE when you come through this, having worked, slaved, suffered, did without, you will be HAPPY and glad your father made you work for what you have. You will appreciate every dollar you have, you will be more quick to help others in needs, and you will have a heart of gold, which is far more valuable than all the money in the world.
(And even your looks... Your heart stays warm long after looks fade in time.)0

Maybe he just doesn't want you to become spoilt and entitled (like you are feeling now). My parents could pay for my uni tuition but they're not going to, they're not even going to help me with living costs, in fact they're even starting to ask me to pay a small bit of rent to stay at home. They're just trying to prepare me for the real world. Heck I even had to pay for my iPhone with my own money, and because I did that Im far far more careful with it, I pay for all my travels, my holidays. Even though they could pay for me with their disposable income.
Im not entitled to anything because they've already paid enough for me while I grew up.6
