Description

"But everyone else has it." "If you loved me, you'd get it for me!" When you hear these comments from your kids, it can be tough not to cave. You love your children-don't you want them to be happy and to fit in? Kristen Welch knows firsthand that it's not that easy. In fact, she's found out that when you say yes too often, it's not only hard on your peace of mind and your wallet-it actually puts your kids at long-term risk. In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen shares the ups and downs in her own family's journey of discovering why it's healthiest not to give one's kids everything. Teaching them the difference between "want" and "need" is the first step in the right direction. With many practical tips and anecdotes, she shares how to say the ultimate yes as a family by bringing up faith-filled kids who will love God, serve others, and grow into hardworking, fulfilled, and successful adults. It's never too late to raise grateful kids. Get ready to cultivate a spirit of genuine appreciation and create a Jesus-centered home in which your kids don't just say-but mean!-"thank you" for everything they have.

Professional reviews

"This quietly inspiring book, by a Christian humanitarian and mother, offers a down-to-earth set of principles for raising responsible children. Meredith Mitchell's encouraging tone draws listeners into Kristen Welch's message by making the author's perspectives on family life sound more hopeful and empowering than prescriptive. Combined with the small-town values the book embodies, the calm confidence in Mitchell's narration will make many listeners feel nostalgic for bygone times when parents were more decisive and more willing to confront self-absorption and selfishness in their children. Illustrated with memorable vignettes, this is an effective presentation of the steps parents can take to help children accept the responsibilities of adulthood, have realistic expectations of life, and find the courage to be their best selves in today's entitled culture.
