My little sister is 12 years old and I was wondering is she's spoiled? She has an LG t. v in her room and an Xbox One in her room with about 7-10 games. She has a double bed also. Her room is about average size. She has the very old Harry Potter books that you can't buy or find anymore. She has the Nike Roshe One's and Yeezy's 350 Boost along with some other adidas shoes. She has many Adidas and Nike clothing. Now for electronics she has a 15 inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display that we bought for $2,000. She has an iPad 4 that was for over $500. She has an MP3 Player an iPod and she's getting the iPod 6. And she's going to buy a hover board. And also brand name clothing. So is she spoiled? And in a few weeks she's going to play for a soccer team. Is she spoiled?

Kids these days. Back in my day I had a CRT TV (an older model that still had wooden panels) and a GBA, that was it
I was lucky if I got AA batteries. The only electronics I ever got were second hand. Kids these days. . .

Actually I can really relate to your little sister, as the youngest child my family really gave me everything I wanted, I don't think I would count myself as spoilt because I didn't become a nagging princess that must have this or that. You say your sister is well behaved and all, then she isn't really spoilt, yeah in materialistic sense she is but she didn't become a princess brat. What has actually happened (taking it from another little sister who was treated this way) is that we have created this standard in our head that if we were to get things we'd get the best... If she decides to fund herself in the future like I did around the age of 14 I got myself a part time job and bought the things my parents would normally buy me because I felt that it wasn't fair my sister didn't get to have the same luxuries I did (we only moved to Aus around the time my sister was 14-15). The thing is that now with the intro to all those luxury goods, I've become someone with an expensive taste and my older sister encouraged it.. A Dkny bag for my 15th bday, and when I went out with her she'd get me only expensive things so it really acquires an expensive taste. Later on now I'm 18 and I have this expectation that my boyfriend if they were ever giving me gifts they would actually save up and buy me a luxury item, I don't request for it to be like a frequent gift because I can pay for those things myself... It just this little expectation id have. If I bought them a $400 watch I'd expect something around the same price tag back.0
