My 4 year old is acting like a spoiled brat lately and I realise that I can be the only one to blame. He nags and whinges at me for new computer games when he already has a half dozen. He also has a room full of toys. I am about to lose my paitence with him. I just told him that there are some kids in the world that only have dirt and sticks to play with and that he should be happy and grateful for what he has.
I understand this concept may be beyond him. But the "i wants, I wants" are driving me CRAZY . I do have the cash to buy him games but I don't think he should be getting a new one every week for nothing. How should I change my behaviour so he is a more grateful and satisfied child? Is there an age appropriate way of explaining this to him?
