We created monsters by doing this & now it is so hard to undo it
Who is spoiling a child? "We" across the board is an absolute. Meaning EVERY parent raises a spoiled brat. And I am not one for in generals. SOME parents raise kids in a manner that is very "spoiled" or entitled. But certainly not every child is walking around thinking they are entitled. Some of it is child development. I love when other moms point out "spoiled" children and call them self centered. Well developmentally, for many ages it is normal to be the center of your own universe. I would be more worried about the existential child who is only three years old. Yikes. My son is blessed to have a lot of nice things. That doesn't make him spoiled. And to be fair, there are a ton of things that he wishes he had but does not. Part of giving your child everything is giving the gift of desire and wanting. I remember growing up and hoping and praying that something would be mine. That desire and hope was

also a gift. I give my son the gift of desire, hoping, and dreaming. Even the gift of disappointment so he can learn what disappointment feels like and have the skills it takes later on in life to cope with losses and disappointments. But others may look at his blessed life: private school education, nice clothes, and toys and think "ahhh....spoiled." It is possible to be struggling financially and raise an entitled child. God knows it happens. But we typically think that if a family provides lots of toys or trips that child is a brat. The other thing is how much time we spend with him. We take him with us on long bike rides, play tons of board games each night, and take a ton of educational/fun family trips. To that we often hear how "spoiled" he is. But in truth all parents give the best life possible to their child. No he's not spoiled, but he is LOVED.
