Entitlement, according to Dr. John Townsend, is “a belief that I am exempt from responsibility and that I am owed special treatment.” Unfortunately, you don’t have to look too far today to find entitled kids–and adults!
As Dr. Townsend states, “This isn’t a generational problem; it’s a human problem.”
In this episode, Dr. Townsend helps parents learn how to not raise entitled kids. An incredibly practical discussion, you’ll learn the three antidotes to entitlement and hear Dr. Townsend explain the following three ways to apply the antidote:
- Change your language
- Do hard things first
- Keep inconvenient commitments
Dr. Townsend encourages us, “Kids need to grow up at a dinner table where mom and dad are doing interesting things.” Here’s to being parents who take responsibility, live well, and show our kids how to be grateful.
