Be a Mean Parent

OK, the title of this post is a little misleading.  Don’t take me the wrong way.  I’m not advocating being an ACTUAL mean or bad parent.  However, I know all parents have been accused of being “mean” by their kids.  Example:  Parent – “no, you can’t have ice cream for dinner.”  Child – “you’re so mean!”

It’s time to END the entitlement culture of the upcoming generation.  Parents, it starts with you.  Read the article below.  Yes, it focuses on the practical steps to helping kids become grateful instead of entitled…but it isn’t just our actions towards our kids, but our own attitudes and words.

numbers 4 and 5 are particularly poignant.

For Christians, we have been given every good gift in Jesus.  He is enough.   I don’t mean that when we follow Christ we get abundance.  I mean that when we follow Christ WE GET CHRIST!  And that is all we need.
