When we speak of spoiled child, we also refer to spoiled or spoiled child, since we can understand everything as synonyms. A spoiled child will remain in the center of his world without caring about anything other than himself. Although it is true that a baby needs infinite pampering and love, once it begins to grow and passes the first years of life, excesses can make it a spoiled child.
But we are not referring to the excess of love, far from it … If not to the excess of permissiveness, the excess of material things and above all, the lack of time. Although it is not easy to educate children, it is even more difficult to be critical of ourselves in order to know which path we should take. Next from the Infant Stage we are going to explain some signs that reveal that your child is spoiled, so you can find a solution as soon as possible.
He has tantrums often
A spoiled child will have tantrums often, both in public and at home. The tantrums will be the result of not having often received a ‘no’ for an answer, of having had everything just ‘for not hearing him cry’. Then, the child learns that the more tantrums he has, the more he can get what he wants. But the worst thing is not this, the worst thing is that as he grows older he will continue to have tantrums, even if he is 15 years old. We can assure you that 15-year-old tantrums are much less pleasant than when they are 4 or 5.
You are never satisfied
You are never satisfied because you have not learned to be grateful for what you have. Spoiled children often cannot express satisfaction with what they have. If they see something, they will want it … whatever it is. You will want everything you see because you will have become used to having things to calm yourself down, but by not having control over your own emotions and by not regulating or channeling your negative emotions, then you will not learn to feel satisfied. This will cause you anxiety, stress, and a lot of personal insecurity.
You won’t want to help out with housework.
You won’t even want to help pick up your toys. No child likes to clean, but once the first years of life have passed, children should be willing to help with the smallest tasks -that are according to their age and evolutionary development-, such as picking up the toys and put their clothes and shoes in their place. A child who has become accustomed to having it all done won’t see the need to do anything on his own. This is why it is so important that children are assigned small tasks even when they are young… Parents should teach them to do them and then, little by little, they do them themselves.
