I am spoiled...sure. I have led a fairly charmed life all in all. Spent times when money was tight...as in right now...LOL
But overall have been what I would consider privileged.
I have spoiled my children as well, but do not consider either of them to be brats. Those that know them agree...which is good...:)
To me a brat is one who expects...thinks they have a "right to" things in life. Throws fits when they don't get the things they want or their way.
I know and hopefully have taught my kids...the only thing you can say you have a right to is oxygen to breathe...beyond that...earn your way!
