“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 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 their 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 help kids become hardworking, fulfilled, and successful adults.

It’s never too late to raise grateful kids. Get ready to cultivate a spirit of genuine appreciation in your family and create a home in which your kids don’t just say―but mean!―“thank you” for everything they have.

I found Raising Grateful Kids In An Entitled World to be easy to read, direct and filled with practical advise based upon a strong Biblical foundation.

One of the most memorable quotes (for me) from this book is ... 

"Correct kids when they are young (birth to elementary). Direct them as they grow (middle school, junior high). Connect with them as they get older (high school and on)."

Reading this book spoke to my heart and I found some really useful tips that I plan to implement for myself and my family. 

5 Stars!

Thank you to Edelweiss and Tyndale publishing for a free book in exchange for an honest review.
