Are You Raising A Spoiled Child_Podcast With Judy Banfield

Are you raising a “spoiled” child?

The issue of “spoiling a child” is obsessive in our culture.

And now, seeing as it’s summer, a lot of people have family visiting.

So even though the weather is lovely, moms have been telling me they are having a tough time being responsive to their own kids because they are getting a lot of flack from their visitors (the in-laws or mom or sisters or dads or whoever).

Things like…

“You pick that child up to much… you’re spoiling them…”

“Don’t pick that baby up every time it cries or you’ll turn them into a spoiled brat..”


The idea of “spoiling a baby” is very scary for a lot of parents… they doubt themselves and think “OMG, am I really spoiling my child?”

This week, I recorded a podcast to talk about what “spoiling a child” really means (and to give you some tools to deal with visiting family!)

  1. So our daughter did meth the whole 9 months of her pergnecy, She lost custody and we were trying to adopt her baby, We have had her since she was 3 weeks so in her eyes we (grandpartents) are her parents. Any how she is four and told lies to DCFS about us hitting her everyday. She got taken away from us till court , She is finally with a family member till then but she says so many mean things. I have asked for cousling for her for over 3 months from her SS worker before she was taken. I said that I have seen a change in her behavior and I felt she need help with her anger. Of course now we are fighting for her to get her back and now they are working on getting her help. My question is I have never been in these shoes all my children where great kids only one went side ways to the drug of meth.
    Our Lilly is different, and only in the last year have we seen a difference in her words and demands. I have read all boundries books and now we feel like what can we do to help her. I want her to grow up ok. I do know that meth has a lot of impact on a growing child in the womb. Any way you can give us advice. Please .
