Podcast transcript
Spoiling children (PDF 164kb)

Psychologist Warren Cann talks with 3RRR radio host Jacinta Parsons about spoiling children. Sometimes we see children behaving badly and regard them as 'spoilt', but what does it mean to spoil a child?

Warren and Jacinta talk about the interactions between kids and parents that can inadvertantly teach children to behave badly when they are told 'no'. They take calls from listeners and Warren shares some tips on how to say no effectively.
