Publisher's Summary

"But everyone else has it." "If you loved me, you'd get it for me!" When you hear these comments from your kids, it can be tough not to cave. You love your children - don't you want them to be happy and to fit in?
Kristen Welch knows firsthand that it's not that easy. In fact she's found out that when you say yes too often, it's not only hard on your peace of mind and your wallet - it actually puts your kids at long-term risk.
In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen shares the ups and downs in her own family's journey of discovering why it's healthiest not to give one's kids everything. Teaching them the difference between "want" and "need" is the first step in the right direction. With many practical tips and anecdotes, she shares how to help kids become hardworking, fulfilled, and successful adults.

No real information on gratitude

This book is great if you want to reaffirm the value of your Christian faith where it pertains to your kids, but if you're looking for real insights into how children can be taught gratitude in a world that promotes entitlement this isn't the book for you.

A bible lesson. Not a parenting lesson.

I was extremely disappointed that this book is more about Bible lessons and her individual experiences than something that could be relevantly applied to those of different belief systems.
