Why are there spoiled kids everywhere?!

This article is about spoiled children, and the reasons/types of them that exist. I would have placed this in parenting guides, but I am a bit too afraid of putting it there, messing up a child's future.

Introduction

This article is about the increasing number of "spoiled" children. You could see a child in the store that wants something that they should even be having in the first place. From a video game or move that is beyond his/her age group. Or maybe an item the parent probably wouldn't be able to buy, maybe an 400$ item when that goes beyond their budget. Once they ask for that item, they will be determined to get it, so they decide to beg and beg until they get it. Some children just cry and throw a tantrum, or maybe even beat on their parent. This is one of the reasons why 8 yr olds are playing PG17+ game. But, they definitely have to have a reason for it. Sadly, the number of the spoiled ones increase way too much, but specifically, the bad ones.

Children being ungrateful

Usually, some kids are gifted something for some hard work that they have done. Some of these children are actually gifted something for their actions. If they love the present, they would want even more and start doing what they were originally doing, or start asking for things. When they find something they like, they will ask for it and beg for it. If the parent ends up giving it, then it will happen again. Until, when they say no, they plan to beg as many times as they can to get what they want. Then, this can lead to parents having a hard time getting things. However, some of them are pretty rich, so they are usually told to do something first, or they only have to ask once. I hope these rich parents are not giving everything they want just because they ask for it.

Children abusing their parents.

When the child overpowers the parent, this isn't a sign that the parent has a hard time teaching the child. This is usually to aggressive or strong kids, where all they have to do is yell at them, or do something until they get what they want. If the parent has a low amount of cash, and are unable to pay what a kid wants, they usually keep tormenting the person until they get it. The only way to not get these kids is as long as they are disciplined enough to where they knew to not disobey their parents. Or, that the child knows that their parents are way stronger than they are. This is usually why single dads aren't usually beaten for things, and with single moms are less likely to do so. The main reason for the females is because most females have a more motherly side, and don't hurt their child. Fathers usually teach them to toughen up, and live daily life. Some mothers care so much they don't want to hurt them, but some children do.

ACTUAL good children.

Lastly, this type of spoiled child is relative to the first one, but a better version. Usually, these are the ones that are really behaved, and some parents actually get them whatever they want. Usually, even the parents that have a hard time getting the money for the item, some of them are actually reward them for that. Also, while they are being rewarded, the children grow up to realize doing good is actually helps out in the long run. When they do something bad, you must show them that they don't get anything if they do bad. Rewarding them even though they got in trouble/don't deserve it, they realize it doesn't matter. Then, they start to be resort to what I said on section two. Overall, it'd be your best interest to reward them what they deserve for their actions. Such as getting the highest grade on a important test deserves them something they always wanted, but not too expensive.

Conclusion

This article wasn't intently for how to make your child behave. (The reason why I don't want to do those articles is because I am worried about ruining a child's future. Even though I don't really do that here, but this is a little bit of telling people a tip.) Overall, good luck to the parents that decide whether or not to gift children things. If you may be wondering why kids want something, its because they usually want to be entertained with something. I don't suggest giving children electronics, because it will end up costing you a lot in the long run, when they get addicted to these devices. But of course, I don't own your children, and I don't own any of them at all. Getting them into doing something like sports can be a good idea, since most of the kids nowadays end up being busy on their electronics.

There is peer pressure and with some indulging parents ready to give in, many are under pressure to find the money to satisfy the demands of their children - siva

There are so many reasons and factors contributing to the high and fearful rate of spoilt children in this day and age, most worrying is that this problem is likely to get worse in the future.

Oh it will get worse in the future, trust me. With the new gadgets being able to do extraordinary things, they would start wanting it. Unless the parents stop giving in, of course, it would change that way.

I think people (kids included) are becoming more narcissistic, with a 'me,me,me' attitude.

It would really depend on how these kids are raised by their parents.

Kids immitate their patents. If a parent is abusive, or disrespectful so will the kid be. It is only natural.Social workers should pay frequent visits to be able to take drastic measures.
