    Default .....the children spoiled ..........

    Dear all,

    Is this sentence correct and natural ?

    These children usually show a more cooperative towards others than the children spoiled by their parents.



    Many thanks

    This sentence isn't correct. Did you mean "cooperative attitude"?

    No, you could write:
    "These children are usually more cooperative with others than the children spoiled by their parents." There are other ways to write it.
    "the" isn't necessary either.
