Does spoiling a child make them feel entitled??

I'm talking about spoiling them with objects not affection. If you spoil a child with everything they could ever want teach them to want everything and loose the value of things?

I don't spoil my kids, but we have bought my son too many toys, so it got to the point where he expected one all the time when we would go to the store and then he would hardly play with them for long and they ended up just being a mess.

We have really cut back on the toy buying to, you have to be extra good to get one.

Yes it deff does we try very hard to make sure ds isnt spoiled and to earn items he wants he wants the leapster explorer so we are making him help me with chores around the house as much as he can he is only 3 1/2 but he will feed the cats and help me sort the laundry etc. But by doing these things he learns how to earn things and life lessons all at once and thats very important to us.
