I read this blog post recently, about pampering children. I kinda sorta agree with it. Children should not be pampered. Although my parents pampered me, they gave me what I wanted even if it meant forgoing something they wanted; but where they couldn't, that is where I grew and learned. What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, I kinda sorta agree with that too. These appear to be two completely different things. They are connected in my mind though. But then again, a lot of things are connected in mind.
