Can an infant be spoiled? What would theorist Erik Erikson say about if an infant can be spoiled?

Jan 28th, 2015

Some parents think that if you give an infant too much attention, you would spoil him. But when an infant cries, it is because he needs something. It is out of the caregiving that a bond develops between parent and child, and it is this bond that makes later communication possible.

My view is that spoiling is not an issue in infancy but in childhood. Over-yielding to a child's demands can produce a spoiled and selfish child who finds it hard to conform to social expectations because he is used to having his own ways.
