Is your child spoiled?

I told my husband yesterday that I thought every kid should be spoiled and he said I was crazy. Maybe my definition of spoiled isn't the common one and I'm not talking about giving a kid everything they want, loading them with expensive items, or giving into their every demand and I don't think parents need to be rich or even well off to "spoil" their kids. I guess maybe I mean spoiling them with love, and letting your child know that you truly love them unconditionally and no matter what they do you will be there for them and that they mean the world to you. I think every kid should be spoiled with love. Anyone agree?

  • yes, I agree with the idea that every child should be spoiled with love. It's just that most people do take the word spoiled to mean buying them everything and taking them wherever they want to go, etc like you said.

  • That's not spoiling them. That's called loving them. I do the same thing. I'm constantly telling my son how much I love him and how much he means to us. I agree 100%.
