  • Yes, but I appreciated everything. That was the key. If we didn't appreciate the things we were given, we weren't given things for a while. We were taught the value of a present - both monetarily and emotionally speaking. Now, I spoil my kids and they appreciate everything as well. No brats who believe they are somehow entitled to things are in this family.

  • My mother spoiled me with a new spring coat every couple of years. I loved those coats! Other than that we didn't have enough money for any spoiling.

  • Yes, as much as they could. I was an only child for my first 8 years. Then my parents started being foster parents, and the spoiling stopped so much, it was hard with more kids in and out of our home all the time.

  • Yes. I was an only child & with the cousins also the only girl. My girl cousin died when I was 1 in a bad car accident so everyone spoiled me I guess because of that.
