  • yes and i think its a good thing. i think my children deserve to be spoiled.
    i was spoiled also growing up, and sure i can be selfish here and there but for the more part im not, im very generous and being spoiled has given my motivation to do good things with my life so i can have nice things and give my kids nice things.
    i think being spoiled is nice, money is nice, having and doing things is nice, and thats what i want for me, my kids & my grandkids.

  • Nope. We go places, do things, they get stuff, if I have to give them things to get them "motivated" then they don't deserve it.

  • I try not to. I'm very strict with her behavior wise. She does have a lot of privileges that most 5 year olds don't but she has also been through more than most 5 year olds and handled it better than most adults. So, I feel she earned those.
    She works hard and earns most things she gets.

  • In some ways, yes I have spoiled my three year old. I have always tried to teach her manners, but recently I have started trying to not give in to her and not buy as much "stuff."

  • Yes, to a point, but she is not allowed to get away with anything or do what she wants. It is hard to find a medium though
