Welcome to another bonus episode from the series Amazing Book Takeaways. In this segment I share concepts and ideas I read and loved in a parenting or a personal development book that I think you could benefit from.
This week I want to share with you my takeaways from the book "Entitlemania" by Richard Watts.
The book tackles a sensitive topic, namely “How not to spoil your kids, and what to do if you have”. Although some of the things I mention might push your buttons, I think it’s important to talk about that so you have it in the back of your mind when making parenting decisions.
The author makes the case that despite living in a world of instant access and unlimited knowledge resources, many children appear unequipped for their future lives. And it might be their parents’ fault. In the process of giving our kids everything we didn’t have, we forget to give them what we did have.
The good news is that you can repair the setback you may have unwittingly and unintentionally caused to your child. And the even better one is that if you’re just starting your parenting journey you can consciously parent in ways that prevent this from happening.
The author gives us great tips on what to do and what not to do from now on which I have summarized for you in this episode.
If you are inspired to listen to the whole book I have a link for you.
