Are Your Kids Spoiled?

According to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report, it’s estimated a middle-income family will spend roughly a quarter million dollars to raise a child. The number shoots up to nearly half a million for those who earn more.

Spending money on your child does not, of course, automatically equate to spoiling them. But, a survey of 6,000 moms by Parenting.com revealed 75% of mothers think their kids are at least “a little spoiled.”

So this makes me ask you the question is it all money well spent?

A set of parents recently shared with parenting.com…see if this sounds familiar.

“After opening all his Christmas presents, my son actually looked at me and my husband and asked, ‘Is that all?’ After we picked our jaws up off the floor, we had to explain that he needed to be happy with what he received because there were kids who didn’t receive anything that day,” wrote one mom. “It made us realize he was getting extremely spoiled.”

The Spoiling Epidemic: Many parents admitted up that their kids do act spoiled, and the problem seems to be getting worse. A whopping 3 out of 4 parents admit their kids are less than grateful to some degree during the holidays, and 59% of respondents shared that their kids are more spoiled than they, the parents, were as kids
