Parents are responsible for these type of behaviours of their children. The author has rightly pointed out that over indulgence of parents promote these behaviours among children. If you always fulfill every demand of a child then she/he will never be able to feel the absence of it and will begin to think that all these demands are among the basic rights. Now, if demands are not fulfilled than the child will create a lot of trouble which at times may become tragic.
Nowadays, both of the parents are working and they hardly spend quality time with their children. A child upto a certain age needs utmost attention from the parents which plays a significant role for the child's well being and mental development. The working parents try to compensate their absence by fulfilling all of the child's demand excepting the main one that is love and attention. A child needs the affection of the mother the most and all other materials come second.
The presence of a particular thing is understood in its absence. When the child becomes habituated of seeing everything present in front, then the habit of feeling the absence will not be there. These basic things are a part of habit and learnt through practice. There are different developmental phases of a child, like the oral phase, anal phase etc and every phase has a fixation attached to it. This fixation is due to over indulgence or absence.
The case is same here. I have seen many parents that even during college days they are filling up the examination/admission forms of their children, they think it is essential part of caring, but basically this in turn makes the children too much dependent on their parents. Parents must understand that caring and indulgence both are different and a child must be given proper care so that she/he can become a wonderful human being. This over indulgence will not compensate for proper care and will make the child demanding and lazy.
