Sometimes you feel you are wrong...

There are times I feel I'm wrong with how I raise my only nephew. Am I too spoiling him in giving him what he wants all the time? I just want him to feel that he is wanted. I kept telling him that I love him so much and he always replies with i love you too dad.. how sweet this child... I want to give him the best of all in this world.

I think you should stop questioning yourself. The way you are doing it now, is ver good. And I am sure your nephew knows he is really wanted and loved.

That's how he shows me love. He use to hug me a lot and kiss me and say how much he loves me and he even say thank you all the time... he is the light of my life.

If you're his dad then he's your SON not your nephew :) If you give in every time he wants something then YES you are spoiling him & it's not a good thing. He will know he's wanted just by the time you spend with him & the attention you give to him. Don't spoil him, wait to give him things until he's achieved something major, he's done well at school or been super well behaved for a long time. It's not good to spoil children but i'm sure he knows he's loved & wanted so there's no reason to give him everything he wants, just make sure he has all he NEEDS! Good luck!

My nephew is a very bright boy he can read fast at his age 4, English and our native language. Yes, I guess I am spoiling him. Thank you for your advise. I will change a bit the way i treat him in being nice.

Well you know what ur doing. Just make sure that u are not really spoiling him. Its not kind of a good idea if u'll always give in to your nephew. Learn sometimes to control and limit him with everything. But thats really nice of you that u really take good care of your nephew like he is ur own son. Take care. (",)

maybe you shouldn't give always everything to him.he must learn that he has to do something if he wants something to get.how old is he?i also have the feeling that i am wrong rising my daughter.we can't be perfect i know,it's so hard to be a good parent but trying all the best.anyway,as long as you surround him with love he would be happy.it's important that he feels loved and wanted,but in the same time he must learn that he must deserve everything he wants
