Spoiled Rotten

My child is spoiled. I have spoiled her rotten! It's all my fault! In an effort to make her childhood better/easier/more loving than mine, I have created a monster. But the question is - can the monster be contained?

If I were a kid her age, I don't know if I'd be friends with her. She's bossy and pouts if she doesn't get her way. I know some of that is just only child syndrome, but some of it is just spoiled. I think back and wonder when I crossed the line from understanding mom to too lenient mom.

The hammer must come down soon. And not the Corporate Tool hammer, either.

It's been a bit rough along the way, but your post makes me glad we have been so strict with Emma. There is still time! You can turn this around...
