Thanks for commenting Southern29. I like your take on the situation. There are many ways to spoil a child that are harmless.
Sorry if this appears twice - I agree that is depends on the child's personality. My son is so much more sensitive to discipline than his sisters so we have to adjust how we say things to him .
Consistency is key. My mother was a child care provider and did the same with her group of children. Thanks for the comment.
French Twist is a good book because it involves an American mom who decided to go French in her parenting, and it worked!!
"Bringing Up Bebe" is similar to that story.
Thanks for commenting. I believe there are some great books and tips out their. I read the French Twist, it seemed very similar to how I was raised.
You are describing a situation where the the parent let the situation get out of control. As a parent or caregiver you have to be proactive, spot a developing situation and start to turn it around. There is a fine line between love and lapse here.
Exactly my point. Children are spoiled by their parents, and it's up to the parents to rectify the situation. As my grandmother used to say, "you can't spoil a child with love, but you can spoil a child."
Thanks for the comment. I think your sister is a pretty amazing mom. Bottom line you have to let them know they are loved no matter what.
