6 Tips for preventing your kids from growing entitled:

  • Clarify with your children the difference between basic expectations and situational rewards.
  • Make clear what chores need to be done daily as part of their routine. I.e.: make bed; put clothes in hamper, dishes in sink. Create a poster in a shared space that lists family expectations. Remind the kids everyone plays an important role in taking care of the family. Have the children decorate the poster and pick a special place for it to be hung.
  • Celebrate fulfillment of jobs daily. Empower your children to understand they are important contributors to the family and the world as a whole (no matter what age they are)!
  • Choose when to reward wisely. Be cautious about rewarding a behavior that is really an expectation. Remember you want to raise your children to understand they do not deserve a reward for merely doing what is considered standard to a situation. For example, daily chores are expected. These are jobs assigned within the family. On the other hand, if the family hosts a large family dinner, during the holidays for example, and your child/children act as your little helpers for the night, that is a perfect opportunity to reward them.
  • Encourage your children to PERSEVERE! There will be many times throughout their lives in which they will fall, fail, trip, and that is okay. The secret is helping your children learn how to get up and keep on trucking. Resilient adults are the result of children who recognize they are capable of hurdling obstacles.
  • Do not give in. Collaboratively problem solving is one thing, but allowing your child to determine consequences of a situation is not productive in the long run. This encourages a false sense of entitlement particularly outside of the house among other people of authority. Eventually these children will have bosses, for instance and the idea of believing they have the right to challenge rules could be to their detriment. Celebrate failure as much as you celebrate success! It’s really about the journey (and that includes before and after whatever they were striving towards)! Redefine what constitutes rewards, and create expectations
