Entitlemania : How Not to Spoil Your Kids and What to Do If You Have (Paperback) (Richard Watts)
About this item
For everything you give your child, you take something away.
An epidemic of entitlement is overtaking the country—it’s Entitlemania. Well-intentioned parents have enabled a “me” generation of children who lack the wisdom and contentment that only struggle and adversity can bring. Author Richard Watts has seen the extremes of this battle up close and wants to help readers avoid creating it in their own children.
Entitlemania will teach readers how to raise children and repair adults who believe the world owes them something. This is also a wake-up call for parents: Although they act with the best of intentions, their actions can be self-indulgent and selfish.
?Watts offers actionable strategies like creating boundaries, walking the talk, and allowing children (and adult children) to fend for themselves. Although wealth tends to magnify the problem, entitlement affects children of every age and every economic level. The big takeaway for parents: Let your children fail so they can learn to succeed.
