Are you raising a douchebag? | January 27, 2009

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the rise of sixth-grade “fashion bullies” who terrorize peers who don’t wear Junior Dolce & Gabbana. Then there was the New York Times article on youngsters—4-year-olds!—who fancy themselves collectors of highly coveted works of art.

“There’s no such thing as a spoiled gene,” says parenting expert Michele Borba, author of Don’t Give Me That Attitude!“The brat factor is all learned.” Which means that if you’re the dad pushing Junior around in a limited-edition Bas Kosters Bugaboo and carrying a Louis Vuitton diaper bag, and checking in at a members-only parenting club like Citi-babes in Manhattan, your offspring are probably developing some serious entitlement issues.
