-Question in the Title-
This is my view. It is alright to get spoiled, only if conditions allow, but you must learn, too, in the process. One should realize that he/she is spoiled, and must change. If one does that, that one has learned a few valuable ways/lessons. If not, they just have to grow up. As for why I said being spoiled is not a big deal, consider this: To comphrehend the real taste of how 'good' feels like, you must taste the 'bad,' too. It allows us to see things, comparatively. That is why we have the 'good' and the 'bad' in the world.
I do think that parents must take the blame, but not entirely because friends and the environment plays a large role, too. For example, a person, who has a family of friendly, non-smoking parents might still become a smoker due to their friends. Either way, I believe, one must take the sole blame onto himself/herself, and live up to find ways to exonerate that blame. Little children, I can understand, but teens and adults, they have developed minds, and they should consider to be the charioteers of their minds, not the others.Originally Posted by Lighting Count
