Are you a 'spoiled brat'? Do you consider yourself as one? Does your parents spoiled you so much that you no longer listen to their giving advices and even to other people's advices and you just want to follow all of your foolishness that think you're doing it right or doing it the right way yourself? Are you that kind of person or trying to hide the real you from others to protect your reputation or dignity? Which character are you in? What makes you a so called 'Spoiled Brat'?

Thanks for sharing gabs, glad you're one of us :-)...truthfully, I hated those kind of behaviours from other people and I find it hard to accept in one's person.

Those are good examples like what your children did, they're only spoiled because of the love they have from you not by any means of being spoiled by their negative actions. I'm glad you have such lovely children.

Hi add_im, no Im not a spoilt brat and acually dislike the spoilt brat heaps. I think that people are spoil, have missed out on so much in life. Lets face it its not all up hill and these people tend to fall apart when something doesnt go there way. I think we do our kids more harm by spoiling them than teaching them right from wrong.

Hello tredale, thanks for sharing. You are right it's more a harmful thing letting the children gets spoiled in their lives growing up than teaching them what's right from wrong, it truly does affect oneself when knowing how other children gain such a behavior of being 'spoiled'.

When I was younger I was definitely a spoiled brat. I was to the point that the word "selfish" was an understatement. I think it's because my parents pretty much bought me pretty much whatever I wanted, and I didn't really know what the concept of sharing and giving was all about. Now, I am known more for being generous and helpful instead of spoiled rotten. Although, when it comes to certain things like wanting jewelry for Christmas, I guess you could say I'm still just a teensy bit selfish at times. LOL

Yeah, it does naturally happen specially back when we're still in our younger age how our parents brough us up giving things what we wanted, until you realized oneday that you're becoming more 'selfish' so to speak and just realized more when you get much older that what you've done from your past is totally different of what you have become through some changes in you. Thanks for sharing.

I am not a spoiled brat. I was fortunate enough to be raised in a situation to always have what I 'needed'. My parents taught me the value in working hard for the additional things I wanted. Somewhere along the way I learned the lesson that things don't mean as much too you when they are handed to you. I hope I am able to instill that understanding in my son.

Well i suppose that most of us are spoiled to a point, but i don't consider myself a spoiled brat at all. I know someone though who i define as Ms self universe who is a spoiled brat, and she's proud of it, and i love it LOL...it's fun.

Oh thank goodness you aren't spoiled at all, if you don't mind are you talking about your girlfriend whom you define as Ms self Universe and as spoiled brat herself at the same time? I'll tell her that, if ever LOL :-)

I don't like to think of myself as a 'spoiled brat'. I have never really wanted for anything in life even though I have had my trials and tribulations. I guess even if there is never hardship in the world, my soul would still like to teach me lessons and put my ego in its place every now and again :-)

That's true, our souls itself would still leads us our way for the better of us and our consciousness both works together to put our egos in it's place as you have said. Thanks for sharing. :-)

I was never been a spoiled brat in terms of material things. But I am spoiled enough for the trust and guidance of my parents thats why i'm a good person. I don't want to spoil their trust.
