wonderful for their development and helps them build a sense of trust in you and the world
Expert:  TherapistJen replied 1 year ago.
if you dont provide that then they learn that things aren't predictable and cant rely on things. Spoiling is giving into demands for things and expectations that are not love and comfort based. As an example....in a store..I want that toy, get me that toy and you rush to buy it for them...you run the risk of spoiling them and them believeing when they scream, demand, whine or beg that is how they get things.
