6 Signs That You Might Be Raising A Spoilt Child And 4 Ways To Train Them Better

Majority of parents strive to raise well-behaved children. Unfortunately, some are not aware of the mistakes they might be committing with their child or children. Some parents are fond of overexerting their love and affection for their children to the extent of spoiling them.

Who Is A Spoiled Child?

A spoiled child is a term used to address a child who behaves in a rude, entitled, annoying, and disgraceful manner. Such a child can't tell if they are behaving well or not because they have been trained to see their needs and demands as paramount in comparison to others.

6 Signs That You Might Be Raising A Spoilt Child.

1. A spoilt child does not like it when you don't allow them to do what they want. They don't like hearing the word "No". When a parent tells them this, they usually get angry and start misbehaving. An example is a child who destroyed all his toys because he couldn't get his mother to buy him a new one.

2. Spoilt children are never satisfied or contented with what they have. They always want more despite having more things than other children who are their age.

3. Spoilt children are not appreciative. They feel that they are entitled to any gifts or services given to them. They find it very difficult to say " thank you".

4. Spoilt children find it hard to blame themselves for their mistakes. They will rather blame others for their failures.

5. Spoilt children find it difficult to conduct basic or even necessary tasks such as sweeping their room, arranging their toys or even taking their plate to the kitchen after eating. They will only do all these after much begging, or after being bribed.

6. A spoilt child is not happy when their needs are not considered despite them having more than enough. They are usually greedy with the mindset that they deserve everything.

How To Train A Child So That He Or She Won't Be Spoilt.

1. Make sure that you delegate them to do domestic chores such as sweeping the house, washing plates, cleaning the furniture and even washing their clothes. This aids the children in developing a sense of responsibility.

2. Lecture then on the importance of good manners which consists of greeting, saying "please", saying " thank you", and good table manners.

3. Help your children to know the value of money, and how money is gotten through hard work. This will encourage them not to be lazy.

4. Endeavour to caution and correct your child when he or she does wrong. Don't ignore bad behaviour.
