Do you think buying expensive things for a child is spoiling? At what age to you think you CAN spoil a child? Is it a good idea to get a preschool aged child whatever they want?

yes, i agree with bloobird. they don't have to be expensive things to spoil the kid.... my sis does a great job of spoiling her kids with crap from walmart (and i say that in a loving way lol). it's never a good idea to give anyone everything they want. you have to be reasonable to the kid. when you're raising your child, you have to remember that your ultimate goal should be to have them be a responsible adult. there is no way they are gonna learn how to be responsible if they are handed everything for their whole life.

Buying things isn't the problem.
It's the lack of firm and consistent discipline that causes more issues, imo.
Some parents are afraid to parent. Afraid to establish and enforce guidelines and rules.
