Spoiling Your Toddler...

I agree that a child should have time and room and space to grow and be a child. A child should not be made to do things before their time. However I also feel that we psychologically and physically help our children to grow and harbor their mental disability by the way that we treat them. I love my 2 year old son with everything I have and don't have. I am also a single mother raising what looks like to people now as a baby boy, looks to me like a soon to be young man. These young men need structure, discipline, consequences, and facts as well as love. I struggle with not wanting to be too aggressive when talking to him on my stern moments for not wanting him to do it. But my son yells, and tries to talk back, on top of it my mother sometimes laughs and supports his actions. I whip but i don't play that because if they hit you at two they'll be shooting you or some one else by 20. Forgive me if i'm wrong, grandparents are supposed to spoil the little ones, but times are hard, why should your child grow up with unrealistic expectations, because of the situations we put them in?

I agree with you. My parents are spoiling my son so fast and so bad, I don't know what to do. Tried talking to them, explained that it's wrong and not good for child's development, but they keep on with their stuff... The situation is complicated, and ends up by me shauting on my son !
