  1. I don’t know if I would say my kids are spoiled brats, but I think they have a certain sense of entitlement for sure.

  2. These are really great tips and it really struck me when you asked if it was because you said yes too many times. My kids are really great kids but I need to be more conscious so that they do not turn into spoiled brats!

  3. You have no idea how right on you were with that first picture. I have a pug mix, and I HAVE raised him to be a spoiled brat. He and his two fuzzy brothers are my kids, and they’re all fiends!

  4. You are so right. I often wonder what in the hell did I do wrong. I’d never treat my mom the way I let my kids treat me. Parenthood is tough, pass the vodka!

  5. I think every child goes through phases where we wonder what happened to our sweet, innocent little ones. Just being consistent is important.

  6. My kids act bratty sometimes and don’t realize how good they have it. I tend to punish them and yell more than I’d like when they step out of bounds.

  7. I don’t know that I would call any child a brat- the name calling thing and all, but I think all kids feel a bit entitled with their parents. I try to at least enjoy when my tot is well behaved for others- three is hard, after all. LOL!

  8. Haha I think all kids get a little bratty from time to time. It’s definitely good to have tried and true methods.

  9. We have found that taking away privileges works best for our family. My daughter will get in line quick if I take away her iPad!

  10. There are times any kid can get in that mode. I think its important to be real with your kids how they are behaving.

  11. My kids can have a high feeling of entitlement a lot of the times, but I’m not sure I would call them brats. I believe that being consistent in punishment and discipline is the best way to go.

  12. The problem with living with kids a long time is that they figure out what your buttons are and then push them on purpose for fun (or just to show you who’s boss!) You’ve got to remain consistent with them!

  13. My kids for sure have their bratty moments. I have learned to say no more and it’s definitely helping things – specifically my sanity. Haha.

  14. This is a terrific post. I remember thinking the same thing one day about my kids. It is best to catch this as early as you can.

  15. It is so easy to spoil our kids when they are younger. They are so cute and know how to get what they want. This is not behavior we want when our kids become teenagers. These are great tips.

  16. I think there are a lot of little things that feed into building that sense of entitlement that seems to be at the core of “bratiness”. We try to surprise our kids with things occasionally, but make them earn something they ask for. Being consistent is another big key.

  17. I think in some way, all kids are spoiled. There is nothing wrong with spoiling our kids but we must make sure we instill in them right from wrong and that the world doesn’t owe them anything.
