    Great article on the Problem of Entitlement, teaching children to serve @Compassion International International | #itsaboutgiving "Once upon a time it was normal for kids to say, “please” and “thank you”, and they were conscious that they were contributors to the welfare of others. They now generally say, “I deserve what I want, when I want it, without earning it, and I’m bitter if I don’t get it”. They believe the world is theirs to manipulate for their own pleasurable purposes."

    Teaching kids to work when they are young is so important! I have my kiddos do both those suggestions. My 1.5year old sets the table and my 4 year old makes breakfast. My 3 and 4 year olds take turns vacuuming. I don't have a 10 year old to mow the lawn though. :( Everyone has a job that is being part of a family.

    Great article on the Problem of Entitlement. My favorite line- "Get to work inviting your kids to JOIN you." So true. Entitlement cannot grow in a family that labors TOGETHER. Allow your children to see you work alongside them.

    A good way to ensure your kids have life skills. My kids are going to know what the word "work" means. And LOVE it.

    Great article on the Problem of Entitlement...Noah believes every problem in the USA stems from the concept of Entitlement. Hopefully this concept will help us raise kids who don't feel a sense of entitlement.

As soon as your kids are capable of doing jobs, take the time to teach them to do the jobs and then gracefully hold them responsible to follow through!

This struck a chord - time to get working on the life skills!

Being needed gives kids a healthy sense of significance and purpose. Give them jobs that if not done will result in consequences for other people. As much as possible, set up systems and structures that truly depend on the child's participation. Train your childe that we're blessed to be a blessing.

DIY: Never let your kids walk away without a kiss

Giving kids real responsibilities to avoid entitlement... where do you stand on this question?

Sometimes saying NO! can be a blessing. Allowing your child to sit in their mistakes and expecting them to take responsibility for what they have created is an opportunity for growth. We have become a society that doesn't want our children to "feel Bad" but in doing so we have robbed them of all their lessons!
