I take this role of parent very seriously. I have goals for my children as they grow older and have an idea of the type of adults I would like them to become.
I have noticed more and more that people don’t seem to be raised with the same manners that I was when I was growing up. People want things to be done easier, faster and exactly when they want it — and I can see that in every area of life.
We hear all the time about “spoiled children” and there are many who believe that it can stem from how we treat them as a child. Some may believe it’s because we give in to our infants and cuddle them when they cry. Other parents may believe in tough love and not doing so can lead to a child who feels entitled. I have my own ideas on how exactly to raise a spoiled child and it’s more about what the parent is (or isn’t) doing that models exactly the type of person you want them to be … and kids (in my experience) soak everything in and will do not only what we say, but what we don’t say but show.
