Parents who spoil their kids to the extent where they give everything to their children are what’s wrong with the world today. Imagine all that your children do is sit at home, do nothing for themselves yet you continue to buy them everything that they ask for such as the latest gadgets, cars and clothes among other things.
Perhaps you as a parent mean well, but believe you me this does nothing but just wrongly influences them. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying that in order to teach your children about the value of earning luxurious stuff through hard work, should be done without helping them out a little but don’t be the only party trying.
Don’t spoon feed your children to the point where they are not able to do things on their own. You should only do so much as a parent and then allow them to find their own way. Teach your children what hard work really means so that when they get something valuable, they learn to appreciate it more.
I have seen how so many spoiled kids turn out. Most are sent to the best universities in the world, get the pocket money they desire and then return back home with no qualification because all they went to do there is play around and they see nothing wrong with it because they know that their parents will always be there to pay for another university opportunity.
I have seen how children who have done nothing for themselves, being gifted the opportunity to drive around their parents cars and not worry about bumping the vehicle because they know that the parents would cash out money for another car with no hassle.
I have also seen how children go on drinking sprees, splashing money on buying alcohol not worrying about the amount of money leaving their bankcards as they swipe for champagne because they know at the end of the day their parents would replace the money.
And I have also seen how children quit their jobs because they feel that sleeping is more important than working.
The sad part about it all is that this does not even phase them because they know that their parents will not kick them out.
Its high time parents to stop doing this, stop wiping your children’s behinds when clearly they can do it on their own. Love your kids, yes but know that, that love should come with the ability to discipline them the right way as well.
