    Great points. I agree with you – it’s ok to spoil our children, but we need to teach them the value of work. I like to set goals and rewards for my kids. They know that they have to earn their reward, not everything they want is given to them!

      Oh I agree, and my daughter does daily chores. If chores don’t get done, she doesn’t get anything new :)

    I totally agree just because a child has possessions doesn’t mean a child is spoiled. To me a child who has done without who has a sucky attitude is worse than a child who has things with a great attitude.

    WOW – mom guilt, sometimes I find my children very spoiled but I also try to teach them appreciation and thankfulness for their things!

    Great post! It is so hard to find the balance of “spoiling” our kids and teaching them responsibility. I didn’t have a lot growing up, so I often find myself wanting to spoiling our children even more because of it.

    I come from a family of 5, 3 kids and I’m the oldest :( aaand there’s a lot of space between my two brothers( yes I am the only girl) when I was 7 my brother come to take everything from me (including parents) but I could handle because I grew with my grand parents and I was the baby for them,when I move to my moms she spoil us both we were no poor no rich she was working and my stepdad was here in USA working so we have lot of good stuff(ahh still remember those Jordan shoes he gave me for my birthday) anyway, then suddenly when I was 18 and my brother was 11 my mom got prego(yes she was 35 by then) so the baby came and he is now spoiled brat because he have so many things that we couldn’t have no because we didn’t have the money but because my mom always said that we have to earn everything we ask for and we got!!! I have 3 kids I am not spoiler than my mom but I teach them they have to earn everything they have……mmmm I’m still mad at my brother he got a better Jordan shoes than mine!!!!

      Yep. And I’m completely ok with that choice. She knows what is ok and not ok to do and/or say :). I saw thousands of other little girls there too :).

    I think that any child should “earn” the extras. I’m an only child as well but I wasn’t spoiled with material things. I got a lot of attention because I was one of two gradnchildren. My children are the only niece and nephew and also the only great grands and I have let my family know no matter what is given my children have to display certain behaviors in order to receive any new gifts and it’s all my discretion.

    This is hilarious! U Spend more on ur daughters gifts then my husband makes in a year I bet. She probably will never want for anything. But if she falls in love with a person who can’t support that lifestyle…will she be able to hack it? Money and gifts are not love…so I hope she is able to understand this. I’m not envious…lol…The opposite really…Once we attain are blessed better living…it will be much appreciated. And presents…we almost never give presents…maybe an homemade card…or a deed of service. We pay our bills and the kids have clean clothes and food and we love em. They may think they’re spoiled actually. ???? Kids are thankful for little things.

      I’m glad you find it hilarious :). My child is just as happy with a homemade card as she is with a new barbie, so I don’t think we are setting her up in a certain “lifestyle” that other people couldn’t give her LOL. We are not rich by any means. But she is an only child, only grandchild, and only great grand child, so she does get presents, but she gets more love than anything ;)
