Nurturing is not the same as spoiling

“She has you wrapped around her little finger.”

“He’s going to get used to you responding immediately.”

“Teach them how to be independent.”

Children are built to be reliant on their parents. They are not meant to be independent, self sufficient or self-knowing until much later in life.

Parents are meant to support their children – financially, physically and emotionally. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Nurturing your child by being responsive, respectful, and loving is 𝘯𝘰𝘵 the same as spoiling them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Spoiling a child is when a grandparent gives them too much sugar. Spoiling a child is when they have grown accustomed to expecting a certain level and volume of material possessions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Loving your child – supporting your child – lifting them up when they fall – these are the responsibilities of a parent. These things are not frivolous. They are a necessity.
