We can learn powerful lessons from our children and grandchildren.
I have a granddaughter, early teens, who has a birthday the 31st of this month.
But when I call to ask her what she wants she's too bashful to ask for anything. Finally we make a deal:
She'll send me a link to Amazon to make it easy for me to order what she wants. So she did and it was that easy. By the way what she wanted was a monkey swing - whatever that is.
What impressed me was that she doesn't have a sense of entitlement even though she knows we'd give her pretty much whatever she wants - within reason.
Today I see a lot of children (and adults) who're demanding and have a sense of entitlement.It's refreshing and exemplary to me when I encounter those who are not.
