If you spoiled you kids do you regret it? Did you correct the behavior when they were young or did things just get worse.

My children are not spoiled they only have what they need not what they want.. But I have known kids that are so spoiled that the parents regret it and really wish they didn't cause they behave so badly, cause they have gotten away with everything. If your child was spoiled how do they behave and do you regret it.

  • my sons only 14 months old so i dont know how he will behave yet, but i have all intentions on spoiling him. i think he deserves everything he needs, and wants and i want to give it to him. i was spoiled, and i can be alittle selfish sometimes or want things right away, impatient, but besides that, i was always well behaved and generous and nice. and the fact that my mom gave me what i want (new clothes, vacations, cars, etc.) - gave me more motivation to finish college and get a good job so that i can continue that lifestyle, and also give it to my children.

  • I guess it depends on your definition of "spoiled". I think it's ok for a child to have SOME wants in addition to their NEEDS.

    I have a two year old, and she is an only, so she can have some "wants", maybe more wants than children who have multiple siblings. But it's not an everyday thing.

  • Oh, ok OP, I see what you're saying. My daughter does that sometimes, but I don't think she is spoiled. When she does that, I usually, ignore her. Works like a charm.
