How do you un-spoil a child???
My daughter is 6 and an only child. She was a dificult baby which caused us to get in the habbit of tip toing around her. She's a great kid, very funny and smart but she is obsessed with getting toys, can't handle losing a game, gets little joy out of things most kids would (even our very first trip to Disney world last month!) because she's taken to Chucky Cheese or the local theme parks so much (by her dad, myself, grandparents), etc. Yesterday when playing games with friends I noticed her bending the rules when ever things weren't going her way. She actually started to cry when she was trying to make up an excuse for why she wasn't really tagged or had dropped the ball. I can see her growing up hated by other kids because of her attitude, she has little concern for other people which is completely the opposite of my husband and I. I take full responsibility for myself and husband and know we have brought this on ourselves. But how to we fix it before it is too late?
