Give Me, Get Me, Buy Me!: Preventing or Reversing Entitlement in Your Childs Attitude by Donna Corwin

Stop Entitlement Issues in Their Tracks and Take Back Your Parental PowerWhen children grow up in a world where their every whim is fulfilled and they receive trophies just for showing up, their sense of reality becomes tainted, and they never build the necessary coping mechanisms to deal with the difficulties they will face in life. They are brought up to believe they are entitled, adopting an attitude that they should have it all; that they deserve it all.The sense of entitlement begins with parents buying the best toys and racing around town for the sneakers everyone else is wearing, and then it develops into the must-have cars and Prada bags. These kids think its coming to them, which makes it very difficult for them to adjust to the real world or eventually leave home.But whats even worse is what lies beyond materialism; the entitled attitude that is created through parents fear of saying no, of disappointing their child, of setting boundaries, and following through with disciplinary actions. Parents can also raise an entitled child often out of confusion with both their own upbringing and societal and media pressure. Donna Corwin knows what this is like because she has been there. She, like so many other parents, gave her daughter everything she wanted, both materialistically and behaviorally, until it started getting out of hand. She realized she had overindulged her child and had to retool her parenting skills in order to get back on track. In Give Me, Get Me, Buy Me, veteran parenting author of seven previous books, including the bestselling Time-Out for Toddlers, Corwin gives readers the tools to take back their parental power and stop living in fear of their childrens whining,  bad reactions, and demands. In addition, she offers background on why and how children become entitled regardless of socioeconomic background, and then explains in detail how to teach children core morals and values, how to deal with lifes disappointments constructively, how to communicate respectfully, and how to manage money instead of throwing it away.  Further, parents will receive techniques and insights on preventing and reversing selfish, self-indulgent, and egotistical behaviors and attitudes while understanding how to guide, nurture, and teach and set limits.
