Publisher's Summary

"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 help kids become hardworking, fulfilled, and successful adults.

    "No real information on gratitude "

    This book is great if you want to reaffirm the value of your Christian faith where it pertains to your kids, but if you're looking for real insights into how children can be taught gratitude in a world that promotes entitlement this isn't the book for you.

    "Enlightening"

    I found myself nodding my head a lot with what she was saying. I've changed a few things in my household since reading this book. I've gone back to attending church regularly as well. If you don't want to read or hear about bible stories or bible verses, don't buy this book.

    "A bible lesson. Not a parenting lesson."

    I was extremely disappointed that this book is more about Bible lessons and her individual experiences than something that could be relevantly applied to those of different belief systems.

    "Conservative Christian Parenting Book"

    This is a conservative Christian parenting book. While I found it to be interesting I would have liked to know this before I bought it.

    "Good read"

    Great anecdotals and suggestions. I definitely needed some ideas to help with establishing a countercultural approach to parenting.

    "A must read for parents!"

    I loved this book. I bought it in hopes of parenting our 3 young children more effectively, but I quickly realized it needs to start with me, and I needed to do a lot of changes in myself first. It's very well written, very informative, and I would even say life-changing. I'm Christian, like the author, and I really liked how our values are the same and I have the same desires for my home as she does for hers. A must read.

    "Misleading"

    The description didn't mention religion at all yet this is the main premise of the book. The author also had a number of contradictions in message that were frustrating to listen to (for example Christian children have it rough because they are "different" which she encourages, but differences that others have (Caitlin Jenner for example) are weird and not to be tolerated. Another example is that punishments for bad behavior should not involve depriving children of their spiritual community yet she also described taking away youth group field trips as punishment. She seems to equate gratefulness exclusively with Christianity (which I believe is pretty narrow minded)

    "False Advertising"

    This book seems more about religion that it does about raising kids.

    I think you should advertise that this has a religious flair to it, I had no idea want to look at the book and I thought it would be a great parenting book.

    I'm not religious in any sense of the word, and I don't appreciate your comments with regard to homosexuality. It's 2016 folks, it's time to accept everybody as they are and not make claims that "God" doesn't embrace homosexuality.

    When you preach this in your book, it tells me that you're brainwashing your children to think the same way.

    I think this is absolutely wrong!

    I'm asking for a refund!

    "I really wanted to like it"

    I really want to think the previous review were a bit harsh. However this book is written like a research paper and then gets pretty naggy. At some point I think they lost sight of the title of the bookie poorly titled. It started out ok and the author does mention it's not a how to buy a shared experience. But most of the points I enjoyed and felt were on topic were quoted from another book.

    One example is when she is talking about her child not want to compromise their morals by what they were reading in school and then goes into a talk about people's sexuality. Not saying I don't share her Christian views but not really what I was expecting to read considering the title.
