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.

    "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.

    "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 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.

    "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.

    "Hands on real applications"

    Great, easy and applicable ideas on the HOW to raise grateful kids... And as we all fear, yes, it starts with ourselves :)

    "Down to earth,practical wisdom"

    Loved this book. It is chock full of down to earth, practical wisdom and encouragement. Real life stories show the messiness of life and the imperfect realness we can all relate too. Recommend this book to all who wish to do raise great adults and intentionally parent their children.

    "A Great Read for Parents"

    This is a practical perspective on parenting against the entitled that American Society endorses. Welch gives practical scenarios and is able to back her parenting style up from a Christian foundation. A must read for parents who do not want their children to fall prey to the mentality of the times.

    "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!
