I believe behind every behavioral child, teen there is an adult who is spoiling the person, whether it is a Grandma, older sibling, parent, aunt, etc. That's all it takes is one person!

I just don't remember so many "behavior problems" when we were kids. unfortunately, naming a behavior issue almost absolves the child FROM their behavior.
I truly have no idea what "oppositional defiant" is except it sounds as if the child is simply being stubborn...big surprise! children? stubborn and willful? never!
I also, however, do not believe that spoiling could cause an ACTUAL (if this is one) behavior issue - but - I DO think we are raising ingrates (our precious little snowflakes ~ sarcasm) by our own obsessively protective behaviors as parents.
it seems as if every child has some sort of "behavior issue" nowadays - no, they don't...they are kids.

Wow, really? You must not actually deal with children with behavioural problems, then, because I guarantee you that "spoiling" them isn't the problem.
