- Don’t expect too much of him too young, assuring yourself that “he doesn’t understand”.
- Laugh at “how cute” it is when he throws his food down from the high chair.
- Comfort him when he throws a fit; at least give him the thing about which he is throwing the fit.
- Make sure he gets to do/have “what everyone else does/has”.
- Don’t ever make him earn money to buy things he wants.
- Make excuses for him when he misbehaves. This will help him learn to blame his problems on everything or everyone else.
- Wash all his dishes, make his bed, clean up after him and keep telling yourself that “childhood is just for fun–he’ll grow up later”.
And above all else, to successfully raise a spoiled child, let him think the world revolves around him, his food preferences, his recreational needs and his whims. Do whatever you have to do to keep him in the center of the universe, including but not limited to refusing any more children from God. After all, spoiling one or two is difficult (and costly) enough.
