Description

Whenever Amy McCready mentions the "entitlement epidemic" to a group of parents, she is inevitably met with eye rolls, nodding heads, and loaded comments about affected children. It seems everywhere one looks, there are preschoolers who only behave in the grocery store for a treat, narcissistic teenagers posting selfies across all forms of social media, and adult children living off their parents. Parenting expert Amy McCready reveals in this book that the solution is to help kids develop healthy attitudes in life. By setting up limits with consequences and training them in responsible behavior and decision making, parents can rid their homes of the entitlement epidemic and raise confident, resilient, and successful children. Whether parents are starting from scratch with a young toddler or navigating the teen years, they will find in this book proven strategies to effectively quell entitled attitudes in their children.

        May 18, 2015
        Parenting expert McCready (If I Have to Tell You One More Time) has noticed a disturbing trend: an “epidemic” of entitled children who are demanding and spoiled. Parents, she asserts, spend too much time appeasing these little monarchs, thus depleting the resilience, independence, and self-reliance that children need to become successful, happy adults. McCready has packed her text with helpful tools (“Un-Entitlers”), beginning with “Mind, Body, and Soul Time” (MBST), which she says will turn negative behavior and feelings of entitlement around. The practice requires each parent to spend 10 minutes a day giving each child complete, undivided attention (for young children, twice daily). Children, according to her, have one essential psychological need: a sense of significance and belonging. MBST will fill a child’s “attention basket,” giving him or her little reason to act out. In ensuing chapters, McCready covers a wealth of other suggestions for helping kids become un-entitled, along with scripts parents can use and ideas for various ages from preschool to teen. This user-friendly guide is overflowing with practical, creative, and thoughtful strategies.
