One day I was in the store and I saw some kids and there parents, These kids cut up so bad, Beacuse they wanted somthing out of the store and the parents told them no they could't get it and one of the kids fell out screaming and crying. I know I have 3 Kids and before I go in the store I tell them don't ask for any thing unless it is something you really need or I just buy some candy, or a toy. So what is a good way to tell kids that is spoiled that they can't have what they want?

I've seen a lot of spoiled kids. Everywhere. The most common thing I see is temper tantrums. I think the reason why the parents given in and spoil the kids is because they want them to shut up and not to cause a scene. But, parents need to just let the child do that so they learn that they're not always going to get what they want.

I think the parents need to teach the kids from home first.

I agree. I've dealt with a lot of demanding children and they are one of the worst kind to deal with. The second worse is the children that plain out disrespect you. You tell them to stop doing something and they just ignore you like you aren't even there! It's so frustrating!

Those parents are paying the price for not teaching their kids how to behave a long time ago. When my kids were very young they learned that having a fit in the store not only did not get them what they wanted but it got them punished when we got home. I had to swat my son on his butt when he was around 4 years old because he thought that throwing himself on the floor and having a big tantrum would get him what he wanted. He only tried that tactic once.

I have a 3 year old son but he is so responsive enough if I told him I don't have money to buy him a toy. My parents do spoil him by giving everything he wants but the good thing that he listens to his mom. And I always told him that we can buy as long as he needs it not he wants it.

For kids who scream and yell in the stores, if the parents give in to them and bought them something, they are actually giving in to the "threats", they are telling their kids that as long as you scream and yell, we can't do anything about it and you get your way. I think they really need to start teaching them at home.
