How do you know if your child is spoiled?

I know when you see other children that are not yours its easier to pass judgement on them and say they are spoiled or well-behaved, or whatever. But when its your own child, you think of them as the world, how do you know if your child is spoiled or not? I hope I clarified my question.. thanks!

  • I'm not sure. I hope that mine isn't spoiled. I put my foot down and keep it there with her, but her Daddy says I give in way to easy. So I don't' really know.

  • I've wondered the same thing.. my son isnt the perfect child, he has his days.. but I am afraid I have spoiled him, cuz when he was younger I would buy him a toy at the store if he was good for me while we were out doing errands.... well that has caught up with me, cuz now that he understands more, he thinks that he can get a toy no matter what.. now he only gets gifts for holidays and birthdays..
