  • All children act like this when they are toddlers/younger but that doesn't mean they're spoiled. I would say having most of the behavior in older children (especially school-age on up) is indicative of being spoiled, but if just one or two of these, no - there may simply be failure to communicate on both the child and parent's side. But not necessarily spoiled. Either way, glad to know my son's not!

  • Nope, not at all! And I don't need a list to tell me that! lol.... I did check it out and it confirmed my suspicions that they are far from spoiled. Ok, the baby is a little spoiled, but he's only 19 months old!

  • Well I know my kids aren't spoiled because I would never tolerate any of those things on the list.

  • Nope, mine aren't spoiled lol! They don't really do any of these things, except for wanting what their friends have then moving on to something else once they get it (but they pay for it with their own money or get it for birthdays or christmas, not just as an everyday thing) so I don't think that's spoiled.

  • Well in 8 years of daycare with toddlers I think I met maybe 3 who didn't fit every thing on that list! It totally depends on the age of the child which isn't even mentioned there!

  • All of you are lying to yourselves if you say that your children don't meet some of these! All of these look like typical stages that toddlers go through? Am I wrong?
