I read somewhere about a man who split up with his lover, an indulged kid who’s used to a spoiled living given by her parents. The man said that he could not take it anymore to face her harsh and rude attitude whenever she her wishes were not met. He became more aware of the girl’s attitudes when her parents asked him to fulfill all her wishes because “she always gets what she wants” they said. The parents said that it’s easier for them all to go along with her wishes than take trouble arguing or explaining to her.
Like the man, I also feel very disappointed to parents who love indulging their kids just because it’s easier than having to argue or debate with them. They leave them cry with tantrum because it is easier than to calm them down. They leave them absorbed with TV and games because it is easier than to play or do something with them. They let their them eat what they want because it’s easier than teaching them to eat what they need.
What these parents do not realize is that all the indulges will only make them trapped in trouble when the kids are in adulthood. At older ages, people will think that they can behave the way others do. However, indulged kids will find it difficult to meet what others want. They will forever put first what they desire and ignore others. Furthermore, they could get themselves in conflicts when others don’t agree with them or try to put them on the right track.
