Concerns about Spoiling your Child

Does your child lie down on the floor kicking and screaming until she is red in the face because she has not been able to get her own way?These are normal attention-seeking devices adopted by one and two year olds.To deal with such tantrums the best way is to ignore it .

My child is extremely tantrumatic

Does your child lie down on the floor kicking and screaming until she is red in the face because she has not been able to get her own way? There is no need for concern. These are normal attention-seeking devices adopted by one and two year olds. At this age, children frequently clash with their parents, as their judgement is not as well developed as their will power. This is their way of coping with conflict. Remember that the best way to deal with a tantrum is to ignore it. The whole purpose of a tantrum is to attract attention. If you react with anger, you will only serve to fuel the tantrum and the child's behaviour will deteriorate. 

How do I know when I'm spoiling my child

The love of a mother for her child is said to be the most unconditional, unselfish love. She wants to see her child happy and protect her from all possible harm. Mothers often sacrifice their own needs, always putting their child first. Children are spoiled when parents make them the centre of their universe. The child is made to feel that no one and nothing is as important as she is. Overindulgence means allowing your child's will to prevail over yours. It means allowing your child to get her own way through wheedling and bullying you. 

How can I ensure that I don't spoil my child

You must convey to your child that the world does not revolve around her. She must be made to understand that she must be able to do things on her own and that there may be times when you need your own space. You will not achieve this by putting a stop to giving her gifts or putting a rein on displays of affection.

i have an almost 5-yr old boy who does not want to mind me at all; this has been a challenge ever since he was born. whenever i discipline him, he seems to think it is ok to hit and scream at me. we are seeking some outside help finally, because all children, when growing up and learning right from wrong, get upset. but our son should have outgrown this by now. please say a prayer for us.

i have twin boys that are very naughty but sometimes i spank them, and other times i just laugh because it's so cute watching them grow and become somewhat independent. i let them explore and really just let them have fun. spanking is good sometimes but joining in what they are doing will help you understand why they do the things they do. everything is so new to them, let play with the pots. they grow up really fast, we'll have time to punish them when they understand what they are doing wrong. at 18 months, my boys are just exploring.
