Do you think that most kids are spoiled these days

There is a lot of kids that get items that they shouldn't really get. Not all kids are like this, but some are. For example all these kids with phones,computers,game systems and so on. There is so many things that kids have that they don't really need and that they can live without it. Don't get me wrong they can have a few nice things that they really don't need, but some kids have more than they should. Some are just too spoiled these days and I just link its too much.

Yes, kids are spoiled these days. I never really got some of the things these kids are getting. One of the middle school kids that goes to youth group and is in my small group, he got both an Xbox One, PS4, and also a dirtbike.

I even hear that 4th graders are getting phones. I don't even have my 1st phone at all until I get a job and I can pay for one.

kids can be spoiled. In fact most of them are. take a parent. ask him if his kids are spoiled. 90% will say yes. 5% will change the subject. 3% will walk away. Only about 2% will say no and mean it.

Side: Yes

Well when you have Liberal Democrats judging parents who spank their children, there in begins the creation of spoiled children. Many Democrats actually spew their judgmental attacks on parents by comparing spanking a child to abuse. WHAT TOTAL IDIOTS! Can you imagine an ideology that tells parents to go into the bathroom when their children are misbehaving and in this way will make the child think about his bad behavior. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

You can't make this stuff up! When kids have no respect or fear of the consequences for bad behavior, this creates spoiled children. Parents are actually believing this garbage from the biased Liberal media and have lost all common sense on how to raise a child.

Traditional values are good for our kids. STOP BELIEVING THIS NEW AGE LIBERAL ANTI GOD IDEOLOGY. It has proven to be a disaster these past decades.

Exhibit A: the cold and hating right wing extremist. Doesn't show any affection and love for anyone, including his children. The only physical contact hiss children experience are when he pulls down their pants and slaps their bum. Can you say pedophilic?

Well, in my point of view, SOME kids are definitely spoiled as their parents kind of over-showered their love for them.It is a good thing to know that some parents really care for their children but spoiling them with materialistic goods doesn't seem to be a correct way.I once even read a news about parents buying a Mini Cooper for their daughter who is still in 6th grade just mainly because of her excellent achievement in her exam.(which was an easy public examination) That was plain ridiculous.She hasn't even get her driving license yet.If some parents keep on their irrational way of rewarding their children like this, their children might fail to realise the value of every single thing in life as they have the mindset that they can receive tremendous reward by a little effort.Sooner or later children will be greedier and whinier and their demands will be getting more absurd and impossible.For instance, if the girl receive a car just for her first public exam, what will she get for her next exam?A house? Some parents need to reconsider about the right way of educating kids.Sometimes real and long lasting happiness doesn't come from materialism,but from the simple pleasures in our lives. :)

Times have changed and ARE changing. Yes, it may seem like kids are being spoiled with all their gadgets and toys, but this has now become the norm in most developed societies. Modern kids these days are influenced heavily by technology and will be asking for phones, gaming consoles and computers etc. for presents.

So your argument can be summed up as follows: Because the average kid is spoiled , most kids are not spoiled. This is utterly illogical.

Think about working class children, They are not going to be spoiled because there is not enough money in their lives. Buying a child gifts and toys and them showing gratitude and decency from being given this is not a spoiled child. If a parent decides to buy a child what they want then it is not spoiling a child. A spoiled child is ungrateful not just someone who simply has more than others..

No, I don't think kids are spoiled these days. Just because they are using better technology than you ever did? Is that it? Is that the only reason you say that kids are spoiled? I am 14 years old and just because I have a phone, does that make me a spoiled kid? I don't think so, people should stop being so narrow minded and think out of the box.

Side: No
