Okay, our youth have developed such a false sense of entitlement that it sickens me. There is no sense of right and wrong and respecting one's elders has quickly become a thing of the past. We cannot teach our children to have courage for their own convictions when other parents are teaching that that is the equivalent of intolerance. We also teach our children that if you do not like someone's response it can be deleted and that is not the way that life works. Do you not realize that Freedom of Speech comes with responsibilities? Just b/c you can say something does not mean you should but on the flip side of that coin, that right also means that you are not going to like everything that you hear. If we keep teaching our children to stand for nothing this country will continue to fall for everything. When do we stop this false sense of entitlement?Answer Question

I think it would help as a country to stop spending money we don't have. Personally as well. Too many people live well beyond their means and if you aren't providing your children responsible roll models you can't really complain when they turn out entitled.
I know it sounds mean, but I make my DS pay for the electricity he wastes (I keep the money aside and collect it for his future use), he has chores and helps out around the house. If he wants to earn money for something, he has to ask us what he can do and we will give him things. Providing them with a good work ethic will only enhance their adulthood.

^^^sorry, "we will give him things to do to earn money" is how that should have read.
