Teaching your children to say "thank you" for things in life is one thing, but teaching them to be grateful is another. Raising Kids in and Entitled World is a Christian lifestyle parenting book that helps the reader connect with some of the most practical parenting advice. 

It's easy to get lost in this confusing ride that is parenting and we ultimately all we seek in life is to make our children happy. Sometimes that comes with a price. When you have the ability to always say yes, greed sets in sometimes and we often overindulge in our children through many ways and then they wind up becoming selfish and needy. 

During times of failure, children need positive and constructive interaction. If we offer too much grace and not enough discipline, or vice versa then we lose sight of our children's best interests.

This book offers suggestions on how to encourage our children how to become more selfless through conversation topics and activity ideas to establish new rules or family habits. 

What I really liked about this book was the ease of reading. This is a book that makes you question all the important stuff and helps open your eyes to possibilities. Parenting is hard work, but with this book and some of it's suggestions, we can be reminded to encourage ourselves to put Christ first and pray for our children. We are raising the future and the are living examples for our children. Our children are always watching us. Let's show them the way! 

I feel like this book is perfect for new parents and experienced parents alike. There is something to be learned by everybody in here. This 243 page paper book is beautiful and the layout in which the text is typed makes this book extremely easy to read.
