Parent expert touches on positive parenting and spoiling your children

According to parenting expert and manager of The Parent Centre, Jonathan Hoffenberg there is an important difference between spoiling a child and meeting the needs of a child.

"As children get to the school-going age and move into teens they start to identify with their peer group and are more influenced by people they perceive to be 'cool'.
"The child sees people they aspire to on social media, they are influenced into thinking that self-worth comes from material things. They may start wanting specific brands."

"Positive parenting keeps a focus on firm boundaries and recognizing that buying the new prized sneaker only to have a request for the latest brand the next month can be spoiling a child. A child needs to understand the family budget, build resilience and delayed gratification," Jonathan explained.
