Root of entitlement…

People tend to complain a whole lot about how entitled this generation is, yet I can’t help but blame our generation for allowing and encouraging it to happen. When you put children in a position where for the most part they have to raise themselves, and then you give them things because you secretly feel guilty because ¬†underneath it all you know of the lack of quality time you invest, you end up with a child who feels that things should just be handed to them because that is what they are used to.

When you don’t correct a young child for talking back when they are little, or being disrespectful.. when you instead video it and post it up for other people to laugh and “aww” at, it makes them think they did something worth watching, and makes other kids who see it think the same.
