He hasn't been being spoiled for about the last year or so and we do follow though on all discipline. The child is down to 2 toys in his bedroom and I am broke from leaving him home with a sitter while we do fun things. He is my third, so I do know how not to spoil children, my other two (10 and 8) are angels! But there was a very bad loss of his father a few months after he was concieved. And yes, they all three had the same dad.
We don't have an issue with purchasing him things, that really isn't an issue. It is more hi attitude.
