Prince and Princess Syndrome Leads to Behavioral Deviations

Names like prince or princess, given to kids from a very young age, will build a false perception about the surrounding reality. Even more, in their adolescence or maturity children will develop pretty serious behavioral  deviations and will not be able to adapt to the contemporary society, psychologists believe.

Apparently, kids that develop the “prince and princess” syndrome will believe that the world is a beautiful castle where everybody is just a simple servant put there to their service and will be resistant when they will get a task from their parents or, later on, at their job, from their boss. The victims of this syndrome, if we can call it that, become very selfish and will not share toys with other kids, will never say “please”, “thank you” or “forgive me” and will never learn to love honestly, psychologists believe.

If we were to give a definition to this syndrome it would be something like: the price or princess syndrome is a set of deviations which go unnoticed most of the times by parents, or even worse, they are fueled by them, by obsessive and repetitive names sometimes taken to the extreme. Parents want to help and protect their children but sometimes this leads to some bad manifestations that can affect their adult life.

Psychologists say that behavioral deviations syndrome can be born from childhood from the apparently innocent bed time stories. These clichés are usually taken from story books or animated cartoons with princes and princesses where we can say unreal ideals. Some toys are built to the same principle but a lot of environmental factors like internet, television, smartphone etc can contribute to the development of the system. Scientists say that the syndrome appears at the age of 2 and after, when boys and girls start to suit up like the heroes in the stories and learn that the physical aspect is all that matters.
