I have a perfect example of this. I live with my boyfriend and his parents and his little brother. His problem is 18 years old. What ive seen living
in this house for 3 years has been CRAZY.
His brother gets anything he wants. And I mean anything. This kid is so spoiled that if you were to meet him for the first time, you would think he
had a mental disorder because he acts exactly like a 6 year old boy.
While James growing up had to quit school to work to help his parents pay bills, and STILL have to help his parents pay bills (which is why we live
here), his 18 year old brother is exempt from all of it.
They spoiled this kid so much he has not one single friend, and only left the house maybe 5 times over this whole year. His average day is waking up
at 5pm, playing videos till midnight, and then on the computer until 5 am.
I actually caught him and his mom cuddling on several different occasions. CUDDLING!!! I couldnt believe it.
Two christmas's ago we didnt have enough money to get him the game system(s) he wanted and the video games he wanted right, his mom felt horrible
about it and was crying because she felt bad, because this kid had the audcaity to say to her "This Christmas is going to suck this year. I dont want
anything but game systems. So just forget about it."
If we're not having something he likes for dinner, all hell breaks loose, and he will whine until someone goes to a fast food restaurent to get him
what he wants.
This kid lacks any empathy and has no idea what the real world is like. If he were ever to have to live on his own or get into a tricky situation, he
would have no idea what to do, because his mom has sheltered him his whole life.
And not only does this lady spoil her child, but she went way too far with mine.
She actually bought my 2 year old a 400 dollar battery powered car but Toys R Us a few days ago. I flipped out. A 2 year old child does NOT need a 400
dollar toy. And she didnt even bother to ask me if I wanted him to have it in the first place.
Spoiled kids get nowhere in life. These parents think deep down there helping the child, but what theyre doing is crippling them for life.
