How many of us see these kind of kids and wonder what they will become later in life? I do and somtimes its scary. Parents that are scared to say no, due to the fact that the kids might not love them any more. Is it possible to break a spoilt child?

My kids are spoiled but they are also told no a lot as well. If I don't have the $$$ they don't get it period. My husbands brother and his wife has a son that will be 8 and then they lost a child 4 years ago to SIDS. Well they have taken it to the extreme and literally spoiled their 7 yr old. They will go get loan after loan to buy him whatever he wants. Let me tell you that kid is a BRAT. OMG IT'S HORRIBLE!!!! I won't let him come over here . My kids also know that if they act like a spoiled brat they will not get anything else.PERIOD.

Well, I had a few friends during the schooldays who never bothered coming to school or obey their parents.Their parents showed leniency with them perhaps expecting them to learn and become responsible as they grew up,but after enjoying the kind of freedom that they did ,a transformation was not on the cards.I believe,parents need to be friends with their children ,but at the same time they need to tell them when they are wrong.Too much laxity and lack of proper guidance spoils them.

yes, i too had friends like that back in the day. now when i look back on them they are finding life hard accepting it when there children do it. see, to me it will come back on you some time in your life. kids need guidance and good parents as well as us been there friends. i find that no matter how hard you are with them, they still love you and sometimes understand why you are been that way with them.

It is possible to break a spoilt child, but it takes a pretty brave person to do it!! I think the parents who spoil their children for the reason that you mentioned are extremely insecure as parents, thinking this is the only way to ensure their child love them...either insecure or ignorant.
