This is an interesting article. As parents we do not realize we are creating entitled children. We are so consumed with making them happy that we forget to teach them right from wrong and to let them fall and fail. You are NOT a bad parent for letting them make mistakes and fail. In fact, you are a great parent for letting them make mistakes. How are they going to learn or grow into successful adults if they've never learned skills and strategies to overcome or cope with mistakes or failure? A child that is not entitled is a much better adult than an entitled adult. It starts now, parents, not later!
