Entitlemania: How Not to Spoil Your Kids, And What To Do If You Have By Richard Watts Review
For everything you give your child, you take something away.
ENTITLEMANIA IS AN EPIDEMIC. Well-intentioned parents across the country are enabling a ''me'' generation of children who lack the wisdom and satisfaction of accomplishment that only struggle and adversity can bring.
As a veteran advisor and legal counsel to America's most successful families, Richard Watts has seen the extremes of entitlement up close and wants to help you avoid creating it in your own children. Entitlemania will teach you how to redirect kids and repair adults who believe the world owes them something. Your greatest challenge may be learning to control your own actions!
Entitlemania will provide practical strategies like creating boundaries, walking your talk, and allowing children to fend for themselves. A groundbreaking book that sheds important light on an increasingly pervasive social trend affecting children at every age—and at every income bracket! The big takeaway for parents: You may have to let your children fail so they can learn how to succeed.

Cassandra's Review- No one parents perfectly and this book is not created to point fingers. It is a great guide in training yourself and helping your children. There is so much to say about this book and all good because the author writes such a great grouping of helpfulness. Everything is laid out for you as the reader to just learn from and act on.
