So it has become a very large problem with today's youth that they feel entitled to just about everything. I see many parents who still allow their children to grow up believing this so is this something some parents overlook or do some mom's really believe their children have a right to feel this way?
Yes I am raising my child to feel entitled. He is being raised to know he is entitled to love, respect, compassion, and fairness. In return to also show that same empathy and kindness to others. He is entitled to my time, my energy, and the best I have to offer him of myself. He is also entitled to many gifts. Including the gift of wishing, wanting, waiting, and disappointment. Those gifts I bestow onto him so that he can understand the joys of life as well. Without understanding wishing, waiting, and wanting you don't truly appreciate all the little joys in life either. I haven't really met too many entitled children but I have met a few adults who believe their needs, as well as their children's needs, come before anyone elses. Even when there are others who need to be assisted first. That does annoy me.

Hell no. Entitlement issues bug the crap out of me. If a person wants something, s/he sure better earn it.
