Many parents seem to be set on buying their child's love and never expecting anything from them. A dear friend of mine raised her daughter this was and never made her raise a hand to help with anything and the girl could do nothing; not even dishes! A few years ago this dear sweet friend got cancer and took a year dying and this daughter just walked out and let others care for her mother because she just couldn't do it. It was really this woman's fault I think as bad as I hate to say it for she was such a wonderful person but if we raise our children that way it is all we can expect; agree?

Thank you Eric and I believe in rewarding children for good things; that teaches life I think.
That does not surprise me and the worst thing is that many get by with being so lazy at work and everyone else has to pick up their slack!
I have never given thought to spoiled boys; I imagine that could have a bad effect all round come to think of it; maybe a bit worse than women since more women in general are more spoiled than men down through the ages with not as much thought.
Thanks Sparklea; you have certainly brought out some very good points and I have seen them all. It is very hard to try to bring up a child today in the right way because it is expected all have rights to everything.
As I read this another spoiled child came to mind that was maybe worse than my friend's daughter. I would say it would take a real miracle to not cause really bad results.
It really does and the saying this hurts me more than it does you can be a very true saying!
That is so true; and it is hard enough when we raise them right!
Yes; this mother witnessed her daughter's ways when all in life didn't go her way and she was not an admirable person to say the least. I don't know that my friend ever saw the reason for it; we never discussed it.
