Can a child be spoiled AND be well-behaved? I think a lot of times that I'm really spoiling my daughter. I usually let her pick out a treat from the grocery store. If we're in a thrift shop, I let her go pick out a toy (and I go to thrift stores at least once a week, so she knows EXACTLY where each shop has toys).
But on the other hand, she's really very well behaved, especially for a 2.5 year old. She says "thank you" ALL the time, asks "please" a lot of the time, and really does share quite a bit. I'm not saying she never has her moments of terror where if I tell her "no, you can't have that" she gets a bit of a tantrum going, but mostly that only happens when she gets really tired. Most of the time when she's doing something wrong, she doesn't need a time out, even. She is told "no" and she stops.
So, can a child be spoiled while still being well-behaved?
