Quick Answers...


If children never get punished, won't they get spoiled?

Punishing children does not keep them from being spoiled. Children who are spoiled have parents who do too much for them instead of guiding them to learn to do things for themselves. The best way not to spoil children is to show them you love and care for them, but set and enforce clear rules about behavior.
