Aren't parent doing a real injustice to their children when they spoil them?


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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Thx

    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.

    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.
