We all want things. But for some people, they feel they are entitled to whatever it is they want and feel as though they deserve it all. And that can make for very difficult relationships and a whole lot of disappointment.
Entitlement is a killer. And it starts at such a young age. But unfortunately, in most cases, it starts with parents. When parents hear words like:
"You owe me!"
"I want this now!"
"I deserve to have it!"
Parents hear those words and have 2 options, deny what they demand and walk them through the struggle, or, give them what they want in order to avoid any arguments. Sadly, most parents choose the second option in hopes that this will help their kids, not knowing they are creating habits in their life that will affect them in their relationships later in life.
Struggle is a good character builder. Allowing your kids to struggle will empower your kids to become more responsible, build confidence, develop a strong work ethic and become more grateful.
The One Key: Learn to say NO and teach them responsibility as early as possible.
