    Lately, I’ve had a few diff people tell me I’m spoilt or that ‘I’ve had a lot of help from mummy and daddy’. It is true in a sense, I am quite ‘spoilt’, I’m an only child, so I have nothing wanted for anything. but I'm not the type who asks for 100's and gets it kind of thing. anyway, I’m getting kind of worried; I didn’t know people could see/sense this in others. I don’t act, or come across as spoilt in any way (least I don’t think so) can anyone give me any help on what people may mean what they say this? Are there ways in which I can stop seeming so ‘spoilt’

    Thanks all
    If you dont act spoilt and you aint been going on about the latest new sports car your parents got you, then it will be the fact these people are just jealous and jumping to conclusions

    Im an only child and i absolutely hate people immediately assuming that i'm spoilt. i personally don't think i am, i havent heard anyone else call me it, and i can think of other people (who arent only children) who are far more spoilt in terms of gettin stuff from parents. in comparison with ur other friends, do you get more stuff than them? if you get moderately more stuff, then theyre probably jealous.

    I know a guy who gets 50 quid a week from his parents and got a free car for his 18th.

    I'm an only child too and sometimes I get labelled spoilt. I try not to let it get to me. I explain that of course I'm spoilt... I get far more than my siblings.

    I'm an only child, and i don't mind when people call me spoilt, i am. LIttle things like having a sky box in my room seem to indicate this to my friends. However, i don't act spoiled, i'm careful with money and i don't ask my parents for much. I also work very hard to get my own spending money. I think there's a difference between acting like you're spoiled and having more material things than others. xx

    i am in the same position, i know it gets people's backs up when you so much as hint that you put your loan into an isa to make money on the interest, mum and dad pay the rent and give me an nice allowance etc....so i have found now that it's just best to shut up about it and lie, obviously not to the people that i know best... but i'm always saying things like...oh must get a good job so i can pay off my massive student loan, or no i'm totally broke-my loan's run out till the end of term if i can't be bothered going out somewhere....it makes life simpler!
    i also don't act spoiled either- if you meet someone that is- it is so annoying- isn't it?! i'm careful with my money, i still hunt for the bargains at the supermarket etc....in the end people being jelous and calling you spoilt is fair enough if you act it!

    I always get called spoilt. My parents bought me a brand new car and paid the insurance for christmas but thats about it. I don't get EMA or a weekly allowance and i don't ask for anything from my parents except like what i would like for b days etc. I have a job and i work my arse of and pay rent evry week. I pay my own petrol my own dinner money anything i want i buy with my own money. My parents are3 great i dont rely on them but know that if needed to they would be there for me. Your just privaleged and that a good think, jsut be grateful and whatever people say ignore it. Sometimes it can be interesting to look at others lifestyles some people can be very critercising and contradicting. (sorry bout spelling).
