Raising Community-Minded Kids

One of today’s parenting hot topics is children and their sense of entitlement. Teresa identifies some of the root causes of “entitlement” as she addresses our culture of over-parenting, over-scheduling, and over-indulging our children – which often produces self-centered children who lack gratitude, empathy, problem solving skills and other basic abilities. “RCMK” offers easy and useful, age-appropriate ideas to counter this growing problem. Moms will learn ways to foster a We-focused attitude in the hearts of their children, instead of a Me-focused attitude, ranging from simple chores completed at home — a child’s first community — up through adolescence.
