Summary:

Number-one New York Times-bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre have spent the last twenty-five years helping parents nurture strong, healthy families. Now they've synthesized their vast experience into an essential blueprint for instilling children with a sense of ownership, responsibility, and self-sufficiency. At the heart of their plan is a "Family Economy," complete with a family bank, checkbooks for the kids, and a system of initiative-building responsibilities that teaches children to earn money for the things they want. The motivation carries over to ownership of their own decisions, goals, and grades in school. The Eyres' guiding principles set a pattern for helping kids to proactively pursue their potential and internalize values that will stay with them forever. With The Entitlement Trap in hand, parents can: teach children how to work for what they want spur enthusiasm about responsibility in unmotivated children cultivate values of discipline, integrity, and self-reliance in their families foster smart, economically savvy children Anecdotal, time-tested, and gently humorous, The Entitlement Trap has been called "the thinking parent's answer to the Tiger Mother." It challenges some of the sacred cows of parenting and replaces them with solid principles and practices. "Amazing, eye-opening, essential. If you have elementary- or preschool-age children, The Entitlement Trap is the best parenting book out there. . . . Read it, memorize it, and thank the Eyres for writing it." - Jean Twenge, author of Generation Me
