I have a theory that sometimes not only does cowardice and laziness stop a "parent" from disciplining a child, but the desire to take VENGEANCE on their children for being spoiled, demanding and disrespectful. Let me explain my idea, spoiling a kid effectively disables them. They will not know how to take care of themselves, function appropriately in society or manage their life. They will be so used to the cleaning, cooking, money etc provided for them and doing sweet fuck all, that when this lifestyle is suddenly removed they will FALL APART DUE TO NOT KNOWING HOW TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. Think about it, not being able to hold down a job due to not being used to it, never being told "no" so not understanding what excessive alcohol and drugs do to a person. Never being told "no" so when that girl does tell you to back off rape seems psychologically justified because you "want it" (like all these spoiled football players being accused and aquitted of rape) it's why you see so many rich kids shoplifting. Being spoiled is no joke it can ruin someone and anyone these freaks of nature come into contact with. Parents are malicious. You hear them speaking to spoiled teenagers saying that when they get out in "the big wide world" they will get hurt. THEY MEAN IT. They are more than aware that they will not be there to cater to the child forever. They are fully aware that when they die, the child will not be able to fend for itself. The child which has grown into an adult will not have a clue about how to take care of themselves. Holding down a job, managing their lives etc will be an impossibility for them as they have been DELIBERATELY CONDITIONED into thinking some fool will sort it all out for them. Why would a parent do this? I think it starts off as either cowradice or laziness. The child gets spoiled. This progresses into a resentment no parent would admit to having for their own offspring, due to their kids demands, abusiveness and general misbehavior. So they decide not to correct their kids knowing they will one day behave like a brat in front of some bruiser more than willing to knock the crap out of them. Or simply not be able to have a decent life when Mummy and Daddy are gone. It's the ultimate revenge for years of nuturing someone who didn't appreciate you. You would not spoil someone if you loved them. I'm glad I'm the bastard kid of the family who is without fail the one being shouted at all the time, I wouldn't trade places for my fat, helpless, spoiled, delusional sister for the entire world. She has caused such heartache that part of me can't wait until I'm the only one she has left because she will get fuck all from me. What do you guys think? Do parents deliberately not correct their spoiled children in order to damage them in later life?
