The world is filled with entitled people.
I know they get a lot of attention because of the Internet but there actually are a lot of entitled people who think they deserve to have everything. And I feel sorry for their kids who most of the time grow up to be just like their parents and it is an endless cycle that never ends. First, we had flat-earthers, then anti-vaxxers and now we have people who think teaching their kid to steal is perfectly okay.
In this instance, the father thankfully put his foot down. But most of the time, these entitled kids take advantage of their ‘friends’ by bullying them into submission while they enjoy everything. This is turn teaches them that taking things by force won’t have any comeuppance and that it is what they deserve. After all, if you throw a big tantrum, your parents are bound to listen to you. Sometimes giving in with your children is fine but encouraging this sort of behavior is not.
You can see for yourself what I am talking about.
Like mother, like daughter, hopefully with time, Stacey learns to form her own personality.
It is only the start, and already we can see the entitlement coming off this woman in waves.
Stacey apparently thought it was okay to take the toys home with her which kids do sometimes.
However, how she and her mother reacted next is what surprises me the most.
Rather than teaching her kid a lesson, she just sort of wanted to take the toys.
It became pretty clear that this was a daily occurrence for them and Karen didn’t think anything was wrong.
Thankfully, he did take away the toy from the spoiled brat.
As expected, both of them acted like children but went away nonetheless.
It’s obvious that Stacey is used to getting everything she likes, or she’ll throw a tantrum until she wins. Kids need to learn they can’t have everything they want. Parents, like Karen, who cave and give their brats everything they cry for are just rewarding bad behavior because they’d rather shut their kid up quick than deal with a tantrum.
I was raised by my gran, and that woman would literally let you kick and scream and cry on the floor until you were blue in the face before she’d give in after telling you no. My brother and I learned that lesson when we were still toddlers. Maybe you should send Karen and Stacey her way. –White_Wolf_Dreamer
This is not a permanent solution and this sort of thing is going to keep happening.
This might have been a better way to deal with it.
Some comments even posted some advice that could help OP in the future.
While others shared their own stories.
Apparently, this sort of thing happens a lot and we need to keep a close eye on children.
You never know what kids are learning from their environment.
Has this sort of thing ever happened with you and your children? If so how did you deal with it?
