The other day, one of my children had the chance to attend a professional baseball game with my husband, and this particular child was really excited about getting cotton candy. My husband wanted to make the day extra special, so he bought a nice pink fluff of sugar from the vendor, and our child was all smiles–until the blue cotton candy cart came by.
“DAD! I wanted blue!”
I don’t blame my child for wanting blue cotton candy. I don’t blame children at all for wanting the fun, beautiful, exciting things they see other people enjoying. However, too many parents today (including me, sometimes) aren’t taking the time to sit down and teach their children that they simply can’t have everything they want. Children need to learn to work. They need to feel a sense of ownership for their lives and motivation to do their best.
That’s why I just pre-ordered my copy of The Entitlement Trap by Saren’s parents and best-selling authors Richard and Linda Eyre. I want this next generation to be the best our world has seen, but that’s not going to happen unless we, as parents, raise our children deliberately–with help from some great books like this one.
