  • Explain some more. Why? I think we all spoil our children in one way or another.

  • If you mean give in to her every demand, allow to her to act and behave however she wants, allow her to walk all over you and yell at you and make demands of you...NO.

    Our jobs as parents are not to spoil our children. Our job is to raise them to be responsible, accountable adults who are well rounded. Spoiling them from time to time, okay. But spoiling them in general....that's a big fat NO.

  • Spoiled food is bad. Eat her before she turns rotten. :) Seriously, not much to go on with this question.

  • no. it's okay to give them what they want sometimes, as long as they are polite in asking. but if you hand everything to them on a silver platter, you are just making your own life harder.

  • Okay- not alot to go on with this question such as child's age...... Ummm If you mean give in to her every demand, let her call the shots and you do everything she wants when she wants it, buy her every toy under the sun, and cater to her every whim-- no.
    If you mean spoil her with attention-- hugging and kissing her, that is ok.

  • DO NOT SPOIL YOUR CHILD but do not ignore her wants either. You have to find a middle ground. My son is 13 and spoiled with love and attention but not the materialistic things. He is an only child and used to being the center of attention, especially from adults.But he is also well mannered, respectful, polite and loving and caring. Do not give in to everything she wants, do not be afraid to tell her NO, she will learn to deal with it. People hear NO everyday and some can't handle it because they never heard it as children.
