Spoiling Children: The 7 Myths by Chick Moorman and Thomas Haller

Myth #3: Spoiled children exist.

Reality: There is no such thing as a spoiled child. “Spoiled” is an inference, a judgment that people make after noticing behaviors.

Are there children who act as if they are entitled? Yes. Are there children who whine until the parents cave in? Yes. Are there children who pout if they don’t get their way? Yes. Are there children who seem unappreciative of small gifts? Yes. Does that make them spoiled? NO. It makes them children who have learned or are trying out new behaviors in an attempt to get what they want.

Children who exhibit these behaviors are not spoiled. They are children who are choosing inappropriate behaviors, behaviors that need to be redirected, and behaviors that need to be replaced with other choices. These are children who need to be taught more effective ways of interacting, of asking for what they want, of expressing their feelings.
