Monday morning gets no respect...no respect!
Is that what "they" are calling it? Sounds about right to me!
Last night at my daughter's seminary graduation (yay!), a speaker told the graduates that each generation gets a title: Age of Enlightenment, Age of Discovery, Age of Technology, etc. "Your generation," he said, "is called the Age of Entitlement. (pause) Congratulations."
That is so funny! How was the response?
Yeah, did the kids even get it???
The kids howled. I was glad they got it. Gave me hope!
So then my question is how do we raise our children to not be that way. It drives me nuts, and mine are still so young to feel that way.
Read the Eyre's book about entitlement. Can't remember what it's called, but it is good.
My sister has a good response to the teenage (and preteen) whine of "It's not fair!" Paraphrased: You are right, it's not fair, it is not fair that you were born in the United States, with two parents who are married, with the blessings of the gospel, with enough clothes to clothe an entire family, with so much food for dinner that we can't eat it all, and so on.
