Selfish or selfless? Entitled or blessed? Increasingly, children are raised in a world revolving around them, creating attitudes of “I-deserve-it-because-I-exist.” The world celebrates entitlement through everyday messages from social media and endless advertisements. Indulging children can seem the easiest path in the moment, but long-term, excessive indulgences lead to adults who are disillusioned, angry, quick to play the victim card, and dismissive of authority, both human and divine. Keith McCurdy is back to share practical and wise guidance on raising the next generation at home and in the classroom to live with gratitude and wisdom.
