  • Mine are spoiled. They dont have snotty attitudes either, well one does, but hes always been snotty. Mine have all the best clothes, toys, and things. I want them too though. I think it is normal to want our kids to have more than we did growing up.

  • I think you can tell if ANYONE is spoiled by the level of appreciation or gratitude they have for what they are being given. ALSO....someone can be spoiled if whatever they are being given hinders them in growing to be an independent person whether it be emotionally, monetarily, or by way of "things".

  • I think she is spoiled. She's the youngest and pretty much expects to be the center of attention. The one thing she does know: if she hints around for something at the store and I say we're not getting anything today she doesn't pitch a fit or whine. No means no!

  • All of my three were spoiled as a child, but never once did anyone of them throw a tantrum when they didn't get their way.

  • I think my son is spoiled. He's an only child and gets toys an treats all the time, and I occasionally think he is a snot. But my friends say he isn't spoiled. I don't know why they would just be saying it when I very openly think he is spoiled. He has thrown occasional fits when he doesnt get his way and is then punished with time outs to his room, which he hates

  • Yes my daughter is spoiled, and she knows she is a princess. But she also knows that "mommy is queen and so she makes the rules for the princess".
