Survey: Are Today’s Parents Overindulging Their Children?

“Spoiling” children has traditionally been the privilege of grandparents.

Recently however, the market has been  flooded  with a slew of  new books  claiming that the current generation of children are being overinduged— “spoiled”  —by their parents. My child is “useless,” complains one frustrated mother,  “she takes, demands,  bosses me around and gives nothing back.” Many parents and grandparents agree, others blame the parents and not the child.

 Is this a tempest in a teapot, or a more serious issue?  Pease let us know what you think.
