See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
HELP! Entitlement VS Earned....Both of my teens seem to think that things are handed on a newly polished silver PLATTER... That they are entitled, I constantly say NO... you earn! They do not get it and I cant seem to get it to sink in. We are very open and we talk about everything from a-z.. I am a single full time working mom who busts her BUTT for most of what they have. Their dad pays his support but does the bare minimum other than being the Sperm donor. I do not have any backup for discipline, encouragement, etc. They do not talk to him about anything as he is quite unapproachable and cut and dry. If anyone has some good ideas on how to get them to understand the difference, Im up for any feedback. My son is 15- still too young to work fast food etc, we have been looking. My daughter is 13 has babysitter cert, but hasnt found anything. I work all day and they do NOTHING , no chores but stay cool using my electricity and air conditioner.... This is NOT the way I grew up. Only my parents had an air conditioner in their room. UGH!
